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—but most importantly, your emotional response to—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. If your work is accepted for publication, you will receive payment of $50, and a one-year subscription (or renewal) to NER.
