New Letters (NL), a quarterly literary magazine published by the University of Missouri-Kansas City, has opened its annual reading period and is accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, and prose for forthcoming issues.
Since 1937 NL has published high-quality literary works from both new and established wordsmiths, irrespective of topic, treatment, or genre.
The editorial staff wants vivid, sprightly, and spirited writing on any subject and in any genre as long as it is not overly stale or academic in style and voice.
Poets may submit up to six poems per submission. Prose writers can submit one complete piece or story (3K-5K words) per submission. In addition to short stories, NL accepts interviews, first-person essays, and book reviews (300-800 words) on literary arts, politics, and culture.
Robert Stewart serves as Editor-in-Chief.
Payment: $15 (minimum) per poem; up to $100+/story or article or interview; and $35+ per book review. NL buys FNASR. All rights revert to writers after publication.
Reading period ends April 30, 2017 | Visit New Letters magazine’s website for contributor’s guidelines.
