Call for Submissions: The New Sound: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Art & Literature

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 the spring of each year, and we ask that writers and artists submit no more than once each year. Our reading period will be from November 1st to February 1st. Manuscripts received any other time will not be  read. 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 manuscripts.

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 are  encouraged.

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.

If you submit prose, please send your submission in a document saved in a rich text format with the following specifications:

A. Font: Times New Roman
B. Size: 12 pt
C. Color: Black
D. Spacing: Double
E. Left and Right Margins: 1.25 inch
F. Top and Bottom: 1 inch

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 website. 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.
