The New Sound Journal

New Sound Journal Call for work:

The New Sound: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Art & Literature

publishes short fiction, poetry, essays, drama, art and book reviews.

Writers at all stages of their careers are invited to submit.

Undergraduate students are especially encouraged to submit, as each

issue will feature undergraduate writing and art. If you are interested

in submitting your work for consideration, please refer to the

guidelines below.


Reading Period: The New Sound: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Art &

Literature will be published in January 2013, and we ask that artists and writers

submit no more than once a year. Our inaugural reading period will be

from March 15th to May 31st. Manuscripts and artworks received from June through

August will not be reviewed.


Manuscripts: Manuscripts must be paginated and clearly labeled with the

author’s name on every page. Please limit your submission to no more

than 5 poems, 2 short plays, or 7,000 words of prose, either critical

or creative. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but we ask that

you notify us if the work is accepted elsewhere. Do not send the only

copy of your work, as we do not accept responsibility for unsolicited



Visual art and design submissions should be submitted in jpg format at

72 dpi and not exceed a file size of 2MB each. Each file should be

titled with your name and the number of the submission (ex/

john_doe1.jpg, john_doe2.jpg). A maximum of four works may be submitted

each year. Black and White and Color work is encouraged.  (If work is accepted, details for a

hi-resolution image will be provided.  A hi-resolution file will be necessary to be included in

final publication.)


Book Reviews: Please note that we do not accept unsolicited book

reviews. If you are interested in reviewing, please write to the editor

describing the kind of books you would be interested in reviewing and

enclose one or more recent samples of a review.


Response Time: We try to respond to submissions within 6 months;

however, it may occasionally take longer for a manuscript to be read.

We ask for your patience, as we do make every effort to read all the

submissions we receive. Unfortunately we are unable to respond to

status inquiries.


Although The New Sound: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Art & Literature

is a print journal, we will feature excerpts from each issue on the

University of New Haven web site. Thus, please note that if your work

is accepted we may ask your permission to include your work on our

website as well as in the print journal.
