New Walk – pamphlets and magazines
New Walk turned from magazines to high-end poetry pamphlets from autumn 2017 – publishing 4 new and established poets a year, 2 each autumn and spring. The first two poets in the series are Zayneb Allak and John Mole. Subscribers will get 2 pamphlets each six months. The last magazine – for the time being – was issue 14, which is available here. The pamphlets are also available for individual purchase from the same place.
We welcome submissions for the pamphlet series. Submit a full typescript of 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 bio note and postal address. Replies will be sent within 3 months if we are interested in publishing your work.
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 shortish life we 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.
