New Texas: A Journal of Literature and Culture is a print journal that
publishes poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction as well as critical and
cultural essays on the subject of Texas.


Poetry. New Texas seeks high quality poems by and/or about Texas. Work
should be no longer than four poems for total submission. We prefer poems
of fifty lines or less.



Fiction. New Texas seeks strong and innovative fiction either by Texas or,
broadly defined, about Texas. Maximum length for fiction is 25 pages.
Short-shorts will also be considered.



Non-fiction/criticism. New Texas seeks submissions that reflect the broad,
eclectic entity that is modern Texas. Creative non-fiction pieces on any
aspect of Texas are also welcome, as are critical and cultural essays that
tackle any aspect of Lone Star culture. Papers of 16-25 pages might address
(but are not limited to) literature, music, history, society, interviews
with those prominent in Texas culture, etc.
