About

New World Writing began life as Mississippi Review Online, a per­sonal Web site that the edi­tor (who was then also edi­tor of Mississippi Review, the print mag­a­zine) put online in 1995. On depart­ing his edi­tor­ship of MR, the edi­tor invited those folks who worked on the online ver­sion of MR to join him in this new venture. New World Writing (as Mississippireview.com, and then BlipMagazine.net) was among the first and most popular lit­er­ary mag­a­zines on the Web. As of 2010, the mag­a­zine had more than fif­teen hun­dred sto­ries and poems in its archive, work by such writ­ers as Thom Jones, Ben Marcus, Francine Prose, Padgett Powell, Barry Hannah, Tom Drury, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rick Bass, Ben Neihart, Brian Oberkirch, Michael Dermansky, Courtney Eldridge, David Ryan, Laurie O’Brien, Jaime Clarke, Stacey Richter, Susan Hubbard, Larry French. Recent online issues have included work from Bob Hicok, Dorianne Laux, Christine Sneed, Brad Watson, Lori Ostlund, Mary Grimm, Floyd Skloot, George Saunders, Michael Knight, Nin Andrews, Mary Miller, Pamela Painter, James Robison, Kate Braverman, Ann Beattie, Thaisa Frank, Bobbie Ann Mason, Brad Watson, Angela Ball, Diann Blakely, Gary Percesepe, Cathy Hankla, Mary Miller, Bruce Smith, Paul Maliszewski, Curtis Smith, Denise Duhamel, Robert Lopez, Paul Lisicky, George Singleton, Julia Johnson, Meg Pokrass, Kara Candito and many others. We hope you make the mag­a­zine a reg­u­lar stop in your Web trav­els, and we wel­come you and encour­age your participation.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
