Submissions

We are  read­ing new sub­mis­sions of fic­tion, non­fic­tion, and poet­ry. Response time varies but is rea­son­ably quick, all things con­sid­ered. If you’d like to sub­mit, please fol­low the link below.

Beginning in January 2016 New World Writing will post new mate­r­i­al upon accep­tance, that is, more or less con­tin­u­ous­ly. Information about themes and upcom­ing inter­ests will always be list­ed on this Submission page.

Submissions should be sent as attach­ments in MS Word for­mat and should include a short 150–200 word bio note at the end of each sub­mis­sion. All rights (except NWW reprint rights) revert to indi­vid­ual authors upon pub­li­ca­tion. We are hap­py to read work of any length. Many thanks for your inter­est.

Submit to New World Writing

A note to con­trib­u­tors: We want to alert all authors send­ing work to New World Writing that our prac­tice is to noti­fy con­trib­u­tors whose work we are not using via a short form note. We hope this doesn’t offend. Given the scarci­ty of staff and the num­ber of sub­mis­sions it is sim­ple neces­sity.
