New Letters reads submissions all year long. We only accept work submitted through Submittable, our online submission manager. There is a small fee for submissions, though fees are waived for current subscribers. * Please send no more than six poems, one chapbook, one piece of nonfiction, one short story (graphic or traditional), or one novella per submission. * Send one submission at a time. * Put your name, postal address and email address at the top of the first page of the submission. * We generally publish short stories that are no more than 5,000 words; novellas that are no more than 30,000 words or roughly 60 pages; graphic short stories in comic spreads up to ten pages and in color or black and white; and chapbooks that are no longer than 30 pages. * We consider simultaneous submissions if you (a) let us know and (b) notify us immediately if the work you sent to us has been accepted for publication elsewhere. * Like most literary magazines, our staff is small and the volume of submissions large; please be patient. We make every effort to respond to submissions within six months.
