New England Review welcomes submissions in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, drama, translation in any genre, creative writing for the web site (NER Digital), and cover art. Before submitting work in translation, please confirm that translation rights are available. 

We accept new submissions between September 1 and May 31 in most categories. (See the category descriptions for details.) 

We look for work that has not been published previously, whether in print or on the web. Please send only one submission at a time; additional manuscripts will be returned unread. For work in the print magazine, a contract is sent upon acceptance. In 2015 payment is $20 per page, thanks to an NEA grant, or $100 for cover art, two copies of the issue in which the work appears, plus a one-year subscription (or renewal) to the magazine. NER obtains first serial rights for written works. For NER Digital, payment is $50 and a one-year subscription (or renewal) to the print magazine thanks, again, to the NEA. 

Your cover letter should provide contact information and 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 no longer accept paper submissions. Please see our website for details.

NER Digital is New England Review’s online project dedicated to original creative writing for the web.

Our series “Confluences” presents writers’ responses to other works of art in any media. We are seeking brief essays, 500 to 1000 words, in response to a book, play, poem, film, painting, sculpture, building, or other work of art. Put yourself in the picture and fashion your essay around an actual autobiographical encounter with this work of art. 

Along with your submission, include a one-line writers’ bio and your current mailing address. Please also submit an image of or link to the artwork you are discussing. (Please note that the artwork will only be reproduced on our website if we are able to secure permission from the copyright holder.)

The fee for submission to NER Digital is $2.00; it's free to subscribers to our print journal. If your work is accepted for publication, you will receive payment of $50, and a one-year subscription (or renewal) to NER.

We are building a digital portfolio of artwork to accompany both the content that we reproduce online from our print magazine and to accompany our ongoing digital series. We'd welcome the chance to include your work in an active pool of talented artists from which we regularly choose images. 

We favor abstraction over illustration, but we are interested in artwork from all media that will reproduce well online. The image may be used in its entirety, or a detail may be selected.
 
If your work is chosen for publication we will ask you to grant us the right to post the image on our website, as well as in social media promotions. We will acknowledge your name and title of the work when it is posted, and if appropriate include a link for further information about your work. In addition, you will receive a copy of the current issue of New England Review
