full name / name of organization: 
New Writing: the International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing

New Writing: the International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing publishes both critical and creative work - offering a forum for debate, as well as an avenue for the publication of the best stories, poems, works of creative non-fiction or works for the stage or for the screen, in all its contemporary varieties.

New Writing investigates the nature of Creative Writing practice and practice-led research in Creative Writing. It publishes key articles about Creative Writing, specifically relating to Creative Writing activities in universities and colleges, articles on the processes of creative writers, and about the "footprints" left by Creative Writing practice throughout history, and in various cultures. And it bridges the gap between Creative Writing in the university and Creative Writing in the wider world. It links Creative Writing pedagogy with key investigations in Creative Writing knowledge.

Since its launch, the journal has attracted fabulous support from a wide range of those involved in Creative Writing throughout the world.

New Writing offers an international forum for Creative Writing of the highest quality and a platform for debates about Creative Writing teaching and practice in universities and colleges.

The Editor and Editorial/Peer Review Boards invite submissions of critical articles and creative work in any of the areas mentioned above, and in all genres.

Articles should normally be between 2,000 and 5,000 words in length (though excellence is the most important aspect, rather than conforming to a set length); creative work should normally be not be more than 5,000 words in length.
