NDR publishes a wide range of fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, book reviews, and interviews.

We have eclectic tastes but rarely publish genre fiction. We need more creative non-fiction, short-short stories, and literary works that aren’t afraid to experiment with form. Surprise us. Dare us. Double-dog dare us. Read our journal to get the best idea of the kinds of work we publish.

We ask that you submit no more than three to five poems at one time or one story in standard format with a maximum of 6,000 words.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please indicate that in your cover letter. Please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

All manuscripts must specify the author's name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. Please note that we do not accept email submissions.


We read from August 15 to March 31. We accept submissions year round, but response times will be significantly longer for work sent in the summer.
