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 January 2012, and we ask that writers
submit no more than once a year. Our inaugural reading period will be
from March 15th to May 31st. Manuscripts received from June through
August will not be read.

Manuscripts: 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

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 work is 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.

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 web site. 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.
