By publishing new fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that is both challenging and inviting, New England Review encourages artistic exchange and thought-provoking innovation, providing publishing opportunities for writers at all stages in their careers.
The selection of writings in each issue presents a broad spectrum of viewpoints and genres, including traditional and experimental fiction, translations in poetry and prose, criticism, letters from abroad, reviews in arts and literature, and rediscoveries. NER exists in a place apart from mass culture, where speed and information overload are the norm. Serious writing is given serious attention, from the painstaking selection process through careful editing and publication, where finally the writer’s words meet up with a curious and dedicated readership.
In the current issue of NER, we present many new poems, including work by Victoria Chang, Debora Greger, C.L. O'Dell, Carl Phillips, and Adrienne Su, among others. Look to NER for the challenges your taste requires.New England Review
