New England Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

New England Review welcomes submissions in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, translation, and creative writing for the web site (NER Digital). 

For translations, please confirm that translation rights are available. 

We only accept writing that has not been published previously, whether in print or on the web. 

Please send only one submission at a time per genre. 

Do not resubmit work, even if it has been revised, unless it’s requested by the editors.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted in all genres, but please be sure to withdraw your submission immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. Send only one submission at a time per genre. We attempt to respond to submissions within twelve weeks.

We welcome and encourage submissions from writers of every nationality, race, religion, and gender, including writers who have never been affiliated with an MFA program and whose perspectives are often underrepresented in the literary world.

Your cover letter should state the genre and title(s) of the submission, as well as anything else you would like the  editors to know about you or your work. A pitch for the work, or an interpretation of its themes, is unnecessary and discouraged.

We expect to be open for submissions September 1 through November 15, and March through May 15. 

Please see our website for details.
