Submission fee: $ 3

We publish fiction of wildly different styles and modes. While we tend to gravitate toward the weirder side of things, our aesthetic is always in flux and this dynamism is exciting to us. We enjoy stories with or without plots, but, either way, we’re looking for complete fictions, ones with an arc, an atmosphere, a heart, preferably with blood. Novel excerpts are fine as long as they’re self-contained: if it needs a summary to make sense, it’s not for us. Please check out what we’ve published in the past; current and back issues are available for free, right here, on the internet. While we do occasionally publish longer pieces, we prefer our stories to come in at around 3,000 words.

We also have a special interest in flash fiction, and brief series of flash pieces

Nonfiction - 3000 words max

Max words: 3000

Submission fee: $ 3

We are looking for experimental essays that explore personal experiences, that engage the reader on both an affective and intellectual level. We enjoy work that celebrates the genre’s complexity by pairing compelling content with innovative structure. We want to see you exploring ­­­­­­and questioning through your work, so that readers can experience the journey alongside you. Though we’re generally less fond of travel writing, we want to be taken somewhere, with ambience and texture and resonance. Questions are as valuable as answers—show us your vulnerability.

Poetry

Max pieces: 5

Submission fee: $ 3

We would like you to challenge traditional notions of lyricism, or avoid the lyric altogether. Stricter forms are fine, but we tend to prefer them corrupted. Embrace the radical, the political, the bizarre, but do so with purpose.

Review

Submission fee: $ 3

NDR seeks the most creative interviews and reviews—we want to hear about books and authors that range from the mainstream or the very-well-known to the not-so-well-known and deeply underground. We want to know what’s hot to you. Please see our back issues to get a sense of our length requirements and standard practices—but don’t be afraid to surprise us with something that’s entirely different.

NDR’s digital media category is intended for works that use language, in its broadest terms, to push the boundaries of writing and genre. Possible forms could include: video-texts, sound-texts, performance pieces, the documentation of installation poems, visual/concrete poems, collage with text, comics, interactive writing, or anything else that challenges the borders of medium and genre or might not otherwise be able to be published in a print magazine. Links to any video projects, interactive media or other can be added in lieu of uploading unruly media.
