NDR accepts online submissions!

We ask that you pay a small fee (3.00) for each electronic submission of your original work. A third of the fee goes towards credit card processing and the submission manager, and the other two thirds go towards supporting our journal and helping us continue to bring fantastic literature to the public at no cost. We sincerely thank you for this small kindness. ***Please note: we will always accept hard copy submissions through the mail at no charge.

We value your submissions! While we can’t pay our readers, all submissions will be eligible for our Matt Clark Editors’ Prize in Fiction and Poetry. The winners of the prize, two each year (one in fiction and one in poetry) will receive $250, and will be chosen by NDR editors from recent contributors to our issues.

Entries for 2013-4 prize year must be received by April 1st. No additional entry fee required.

*New Delta Review will temporarily close to submissions on June 15th.  We will open submissions again in August. Thank you for your patience.

 

What We Accept
We publish wide range of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, book reviews, interviews, and artwork. We have eclectic tastes but rarely publish genre-fiction. We need more creative nonfiction, short-short stories, and literary works that aren’t afraid to experiment with form. Surprise us. Dare us. Double-dog dare us. And please read our journal.

 

Hard Copy Submissions
We ask that you submit no more than three to five poems at one time or one story or essay in standard format with a maximum of 6,000 words.

Please specify on the outside of the envelope what genre or type of submission you are sending. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. We cannot return manuscripts.

All submissions must be previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please indicate that in your cover letter. Notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

All manuscripts must specify the author’s name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. Please note that we do not accept email submissions.

The reply time is six months, though we try to respond more quickly.

Artwork Submissions
We will consider artwork in any medium, from traditional (painting, drawing, photography, images of installation/sculpture) to new media (video, animation, and hypertext). Please consider our online format, and the possibilities of art on the web, when submitting your work.

For image submissions, please send med-res files (no larger than 4MB) through our online submissions ($3 fee) or e-mail them to NewDeltaRevArt@gmail.com. For video/new media submissions, please email links only, or mail a CD/DVD with the project to:

If you are sending new media artwork, bear in mind that we will link it from this website, which is somewhat limited in its ability to host microsites and large media files. This may require hosting your work on a third party site.

With all submissions, please include a brief artist’s statement/description of project, bio, and contact information.
