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 We do not publish any stanza-form poetry whatsoever.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.
