New Walk – pamphlets and magazines
New Walk will turn to pamphlets from October 2017 – publishing 4 new and established poets a year, 2 each autumn and spring. Subscribers will get these pamphlets in place of the magazine, to which we may return in future. The last magazine – for the time being – will be issue 14, due in April.
We spent 7 years as a quality international print journal for poetry and the arts, published each spring and autumn, full of poetry, art, fiction, interviews, articles, reviews and more, all in a big and beautiful format. The magazine was founded in 2010, and in our short life we have published John Ashbery, Alice Oswald, Sinead Morrissey, David Wheatley, Christopher Reid, J.M. Coetzee, Sujata Bhatt, Tom Leonard, Andrew Motion, Mark Ford, Tom Pickard, Leontia Flynn, Alison Brackenbury, William Logan, Alan Jenkins, Medbh McGuckian and many others.
We welcome subscriptions: www.newwalkmagazine.bigcartel.com.
Until the end of March 2017, we also welcome submissions (in the body of an email in the first instance, please) to newwalkmagazine [at] gmail [dot] com. Allow two months for a reply. Send no more than six poems or 6,000 words of fiction. We generally commission articles, but do feel welcome to offer something. Needless to say, it is a good idea to buy and read the magazine before submitting work.
We also welcome submissions for the pamphlet series. Submit a full typescript of 12-20 pages of poems to the above email address, as a Word document. Your email should include a bio note and postal address. Replies will be sent within 2 months if we are interested in publishing your work.
REVIEW COPIES are not currently being sought.
The magazine review(ed) as many books as possible, from a wide range of publishers in the UK and overseas, but needless to say we do (did) not guarantee a review.
