New Walk – pamphlets and magazines
New Walk Editions is a small press specialising in extremely high quality poetry pamphlets. We are interested in poetic plurality: established and new poets excite us equally, and we are a broad church stylistically and thematically.
For our first seven years, between 2010 and 2017, New Walk was a quality international print magazine for poetry and the arts. The magazine was published each spring and autumn, and was full of poetry, art, fiction, interviews, articles, reviews and more, all in a big and beautiful format. The ethos that guides the press is essentially unchanged from the ethos that guided the magazine: across fourteen issues, we published new work by writers such as John Ashbery, Alice Oswald, Sinead Morrissey, David Wheatley, Christopher Reid, J. M. Coetzee, Sujata Bhatt, Tom Leonard, Andrew Motion, Medbh McGuckian, Mark Ford, Tom Pickard, Helen Mort, Leontia Flynn, Alison Brackenbury, William Logan, Alan Jenkins, and many others. We also gave other poets, some of whom have gone on to publish significant volumes, some of their first publications; such poets include Roy Marshall, Zayneb Allak, and Jo Dixon.
We turned from magazines to high-end poetry pamphlets from autumn 2017 – publishing 4 new and established poets a year, 2 each autumn and spring. Subscribers receive 2 pamphlets each six months. Information about all our available pamphlets and magazines is here.
We welcome submissions for the pamphlet series. Submit a full typescript of approximately 12-20 pages of poems to newwalkmagazine [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com, as a Word document, or by post to Nick Everett, School of English, University of Leicester, University Road, Leicester LE1 7RH. Your email should include a biographical note and postal address. Replies will be sent within 3 months if we are interested in publishing your work.
