Want a chance to get yourself published?

Austin Living is seeking local literary and art submissions to print in the July/August issue.

We will accept submissions from artists/writers who live or work in Austin/Mower County and the surrounding area, along with people who have a direct tie to Austin (Austin natives/AHS grads now living out of state will be accepted).

Artists will not be paid for publication, but the top submission — as chosen by the editor — will receive $50 in chamber bucks.
