  • Please include a link to your social media (so that people can find your art).
  • If you are submitting portrait photography, PLEASE CREDIT YOUR MODELS.

Submission requirements for MyrtleHaus Magazine are extensive and thorough, and that is because we want to provide the best experience for our readers to get to know you and other artists. Our goal is to showcase you and your work, which requires lots of information!

Please understand that if your submission is missing any of the required components, it will not be considered.
