The New Union

The New Union, a new online literary magazine, requires guest articles for online publication.

We welcome articles on any and all literary subjects and genres, and from any period in history.

We also invite articles that look at current news, events, politics, etc and connect them with literary topics past and present.

Articles should be approximately 1,000 words in length.

The only stipulation is that every article must be interesting and unique. No dull, academically formal articles required! We want funny, irreverent, and witty articles (unless your specialist subject is death, in which case you are excused!).

We particularly welcome articles about unknown themes, writers, and texts.
