Note to Authors:

New World Writing is mak­ing sub­stan­tial changes in how we will oper­ate in future. These changes are effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly.  Please review the fol­low­ing before sub­mit­ting any new work.

We’ve decid­ed that the “con­tin­u­ous pub­li­ca­tion mod­el” that we’ve fol­lowed in recent years is no longer work­ing as we had intend­ed, so we are reor­ga­niz­ing the mag­a­zine as a tra­di­tion­al quar­ter­ly issued in January, April, July, and October.

New World Writing will accept sub­mis­sions only in the two weeks pre­ced­ing the date of pub­li­ca­tion, that is, in late December, March, June, and September.

Our edi­tors remain the same. We wel­come queries/applications from indi­vid­u­als who might want to join our group as edi­tors. If you are inter­est­ed, send an email to our Executive Editor, at

We hope to come back at you with a more intrigu­ing, more top­i­cal, more com­pelling mag­a­zine that you will want to read and enjoy quar­ter­ly. We will, of course, make adjust­ments along the way as we come upon new notions, ideas, opportunities.

A Note on Content

We are hop­ing to expand our oper­a­tion to include all kinds of con­tent — fic­tion, poet­ry, music, art, pho­tographs, non­fic­tion, inter­views, asides, short reports, jour­nal­ism, opin­ion, what­ev. Thus we invite con­trib­u­tors to send to us any such mate­r­i­al at the Submissions link at top of any page. We will look at every­thing and pub­lish what we can.


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 quar­ter­ly. 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.
