Please Note:


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.

Submit to New World Writing


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.
