We seek submissions of literary works with a connection to China. The definition of “connection to China” can be stretched as much as an author sees fit. For example, expatriate writers living in China or who have lived in China, Chinese writers writing in English, translators of Chinese writing, works that are set in China, manuscripts covered in Chinese food (General Tso’s chicken doesn’t count), or anything else a creative mind can imagine as a connection to China.

Journal theNewerYork

We are a magazine of forms! Literature has been confined to poetry and short-stories (or myths) for thousands of years, and novels have been around for less than 400-years. We want narratives that challenge this triumvirate, that while being categorically a poem or short-story, are not restricted by those titles.

Journal theNewerYork Press

We publish very short, experimental fiction paired with art. We like weird forms of literature: letters, receipts, lists, flash-fiction, parodies, vignettes, and other literary absurdities. We do not publish any stanza-form poetry whatsoever. Our books are measured to fit in Levi’s back pockets and printed on high-quality, sustainable paper-stock. We are reader supported on Kickstarter.com and post stories on our website daily.
