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

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.

Poetry and Prose: Sept. 1 to Nov. 30 and March 1 to May 31
NER Digital: temporarily closed
Artwork: temporarily closed

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.

Please see our website for details.

New England Review is assembling a special section on new writing from Cuba, in English translation, for an upcoming issue. We are looking for poetry, fiction, and essays, with a preference for works by authors currently living in Cuba. Acceptable length is one page to 8,000 words for prose, or up to six poems.

Works can be submitted by translators or writers. Before submitting, translators should first determine whether English-language rights are available for first serial U.S. and electronic publication. We will not be able to consider writing not already translated into English.

We will begin reviewing submissions in September 2018, but works can be submitted from now until March 1, 2019.
