Newcity publishes one or two poems in nearly every print issue. They run on the last page of the issue, facing the inside back cover. We have a maximum number of lines of about forty.
We pay $50 for up to twenty lines, and $5 per line thereafter, which covers print and online publication.
Poems need to be original to us—meaning not published anywhere, including in social media posts and blogs, but of course they can end up in books, anthologies, etc afterward. We only ask that we have three months before republication in book form, and at least six months before a story shows up in another serial publication like a magazine or journal.
Please do not send simultaneous submissions. If you need to withdraw a poem to submit it elsewhere, email us.
