Editorial Focus

NMW's mission is to "promote vibrant imagery, word-craft and pure story-telling talent” by emerging writers. We have launched careers by awarding more than $200,000 to promote writers of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and short-short fiction. Winners of our twice-annual prizes in four categories are showcased alongside profiles and interviews of famous writers.

Tips From the Editor

Please submit contest entries on-line at www.newmillenniumwritings.org but not via e-mail. Submissions are accepted year round but read only during periods of contest judging. Those interested in general editorial (non-contest) submissions, may also visit our website for more information.


Deadline for Poetry, Fiction, Short-Short Fiction and Nonfiction is November 14, 2015.
