We are now accepting submissions of micro prose to be featured on the New South website. Print submissions will reopen September 1st. 

New South seeks to publish high quality work, regardless of genre, form, or regional ties. We are looking for what is new, what is fresh, what is different, whether it comes from the southern United States, the south of India, or the north, east or west of anywhere. Of course, the best way to figure out what our editors are interested in would be to read a copy of New South. 

Due to the volume of the submissions we receive, we can publish only a small number of the poems, essays, and stories submitted to us. We accept and encourage simultaneous submissions, but please notify us as soon as your work is accepted elsewhere. We typically take between 3-5 months to respond. 
  • Fiction: Submit one story up to 9,000 words in length, or up to five short-shorts under 1,000 words each.
  • Poetry: Submit up to five poems per document.
  • Essays: Submit creative nonfiction or lyric essay up to 9,000 words in length. 
  • Art: Submit up to 5 samples of your work. We will request high resolution images from accepted artists.
New South only considers unpublished work and acquires first North American serial rights.
Ends on 9/30/2016
