The New Sound: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Art & Literature publishes short fiction, poetry, essays, drama, art and book reviews.

We are currently seeking critical essays, plays, and visual art for our January 2013 issue. 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.

Manuscripts: Please limit your submission to no more than 2 short plays, or 7,000 words of prose. 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.

Please send your submission in a document saved in rich text format with the following specifications:

a. Font: Times New Roman
b. Size: 12
c. Color: Black
d. Spacing: Double
e. Left and Right Margins: 1.25 inches
f. Top and Bottom Margins: 1 inch
g. Pagination: surname followed by page number in right-hand header

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. Both black-and-white and color work 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.

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.

Send submissions to the following email address: thenewsound2@newhaven.edu

Hard Copies will be accepted as well. Please send to
