mojo is the student-run online literary journal from Wichita State University. We’re looking for all writers, from the established and well-published to those emerging talents waiting to be discovered. The current staff is open to a diverse array of styles of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. The best way to see what we’re interested in is to read our past issues.

We publish in the Fall and Spring. All selected work is considered for inclusion in our annual print edition of Mikrokosmos Literary Journal, our print edition that has continually published for over fifty years, featuring work from William S. Burroughs, Charles Plymell, and William Stafford, among others.
