New World Writing is now an online quarterly. We publish four issues yearly, accepting submissions the first 14 days of January, April, July, and October. This is in effect as of May 2022; the next submission period will be July 1–14, 2022. Work received outside the periods described above will be returned unread. Thank you for your interest and understanding.
Submissions should be sent as attachments in MS Word format. We tend to prefer work of 500 to 2500 words for online reading. Please include a short 150–200 word bio note on the last page 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. Many thanks for your interest.
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.
