ABOUT US

Published three times a year online and in print, Haute Dish is dedicated to showcasing the creative talent of the students of Metropolitan State University.

Haute Dish is more than simply a literary magazine. Our vision is as unique as the student body we represent. 

Along with the traditional “journal” genres of poetry, short prose, and essays, we recognize that artistic expression takes many forms. We are committed to seeking out and highlighting quality student art wherever it exists.

Paintings, photography, sculpture, music, spoken word, comics, theatre, film, multimedia and multigenre endeavors – we welcome all of these, and more.

If you can create it, we want to see it!

Students currently enrolled at Metro State (at the undergraduate or graduate level) may submit to any issue. Additionally, our upcoming issue is open to all alumni, faculty, and staff of Metro State.
