New Madrid: Journal of Contemporary Literature

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


We invite well-crafted, compelling submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction for our summer 2017 issue. The summer issue carries no theme—we are open to any subject matter. Quality is the determining factor for acceptance in New Madrid. Visit our website for information about us, and to see a listing of past issues including contributor lists and book reviews. 

Submissions open January 15, 2017 and close March 15. We look forward to considering your work.
