New Zenith Magazine is launching its first issue in July 2016. Our print edition will run quarterly, while the web-only supplement will be updated on a monthly basis.

What we accept:

New Zenith accepts any fiction up to roughly 3000 words in any genre except erotica. We accept cartoons, illustrations/illustrated stories and photography/photo storytelling. We publish authors of any age.

We do not accept non-fiction of any type. However, non-fiction on the topic of writing may be submitted to our bloglivewritelovelearn.

Our magazine will have a feature called “The Prompt.” For this prompt, please write one piece of flash fiction 400 words or less. Somewhere in the work should be the line, “I woke up and found myself …” It doesn’t matter where it appears, but it must be included. Prompts should be submitted with the subject line “Prompt.”

For magazine submissions email David Connell [email protected]

For blog submissions email Michelle Irby [email protected]

Fiction should have the subject “New Zenith Submission.”

Cover Art should have the subject “Cover Art.”

Photography/photo stories should have the subject “Photo Submission.”

Cartoons: We are looking for an illustrator who will provide a regular cartoon strip if possible. We also accept standalone cartoons, email with the subject “Cartoon Submission.”

Deadlines for July 30th issue: Works must be submitted by Noon Eastern Daylight Time, June 30, 2016 to be considered for inclusion in the July issue. Anything received after that deadline will be considered for the September issue, and for inclusion on the web site for August and September.

You may submit up to 3 works of prose, 5 works of poetry and 5 works of art/photography unless requested otherwise. Please submit each work in the body of the email, one per message.


All rights will return to the author upon publication. The magazine will retain the right to archive and reprint the story in its original form. This is solely for the purpose of providing reprints and an online archive to our subscribers. We will notify you if we wish to add your work to a “Best of” edition. Authors may choose if they wish to participate in that edition.
