Northern New England Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Now in its 44th year, the Northern New England Review (NNER) is a literary journal devoted to and inspired by place. We are open for submissions Feb 16 2024 - March 29, 2024.

NNER is published by Franklin Pierce University as a creative voice for the Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont region. If you live here, are from here, found your heart here, or are currently searching for it among our granite quarries, dappled forests, and ghostly coasts, we want to read your words.

This year, It is our vision to expand on what a "typical” New England Literary Magazine might look and feel like. We would love to feature artists and writers who uncover the lesser-seen and explored aspects of New  England. It isn’t all just Birch trees, maple syrup, and fall foliage! We feature not only the works of artists living in Northern New England (NH, VT, & ME), but also feature pieces created by folks with a connection to the area. All submissions should be related to the region. We will be looking for works of creative non-fiction, flash fiction, poetry, prose, and visual arts (for use on the cover of print edition and in our online site.)

This semester, we have launched an online version of the magazine, where we aim to post more regularly while we also work on the annual print edition. 

Our journal is archived in over 200 New England libraries.

See our genre-specific calls for submissions to send in your work.
