Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
In Latin, "Novus" means "new," "fresh," "extraordinary," "unheard," "revived... Novus seeks work that embodies the spirit of these words -- this is interpreted broadly, but we seek writing that exudes a fresh and innovative approach or voice. We focus on pieces that move us through a unique use of language and are especially drawn to material that exhibits new and modern perspectives on life and the environment around us. We also love a traditional story well told and wit a compelling voice. We accept poetry, creative non-fiction, fiction, plays, and art submissions.
