For the summer months, beginning at midnight (CST) 5/19/19 we won’t accept submissions over 500 words. Manuscripts with a greater word count will be discarded. Why? We don’t know. Something. We anticipate further review of the magazine’s format and content in the months to come. Many thanks for your patience and interest.
Note to Authors:
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 work should be carefully edited, proofread, and spellchecked before 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.
We are reading new submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Response time varies but is reasonably quick, all things considered. New World Writing posts new material upon acceptance. Information about upcoming interests will appear this page.
If you’d like to submit, please follow the link below.
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.
