THE NEW GUARD CONTESTS IN FICTION & POETRY
::TNG Vol VI Contests in Fiction & Poetry are open. Deadline is August 15 at midnight
Newtown Literary is a new semi-annual literary journal published in electronic and paper formats. We look for fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, and poetry that go beyond entertainment and storytelling. The pieces we include for publication have struck us on a deep level. Pieces that juxtapose humor with grief, tell untold love stories, and replace clich? with innovation are examples of works that will find a home in Newtown Literary.
Creative Nonfiction is the voice of the genre. Published since 1994 as a journal, in 2010 CNF adopted a larger magazine format that combines new creative nonfiction about a variety of topics with columns and features about the art, business and craft of the genre. Recent issues have included interviews with or new work by Susan Cheever, Dave Eggers, Phillip Lopate, Lauren Slater, Ruth Reichl and other well-known writers, as well as several never-before-published writers.
Writers interested in contributing to n+1 should note that we come out only three times each year, and that most if not all of the slots available for a given issue will have been filled by the editors many months before publication. That said, if you would like to brave the odds, the best submissions guidelines are those implied by the magazine itself. Read an issue or two through to get a sense of whether your piece might fit into n+1.
