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.
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.
