NAW Poetry

Submission Guidelines;

NAW publishes poems in English and Hindi only. All genres are welcome but the editorial team will accept only the best. 

Is there any requirement of an underlying Asian theme for the poems?

No, that criterion is applicable only to the short stories. Poems can be about anything, and about any corner of the world.

All poems must be original and unpublished works of fiction, typed and single-spaced, and may not exceed 500 lines. You are allowed to submit five poems in one calendar year. You will receive a reply within two weeks. A no reply after two weeks means that the submission was rejected.

The selected poems must not have been published previously, even online publication on your blog means that the poem is already published and we will not accept it.

Poems must be submitted in Microsoft Word Document format, as an attachment. Do not send your poem in the body of an email.

In the subject line of your e-mail submission, write your full name and the title of your poem.

Each poem must be accompanied by one-paragraph bio written in the third person. Include author’s full name, age, nationality, published work, website, etc. This must be added at the end of your poem, in the same document. (You can attach to the body of the e-mail a recent photograph, too.)

If your poem contains foreign words, include them in a Glossary at the end of your poem, with all the foreign words listed in alphabetical order. All these words must be italicized in the body of your poem.

Please understand that an acknowledgment of the submission does not guarantee publication. New Asian Writing will not pay any royalty to the poet/translator for his/her poem.

We do accept simultaneous submissions but the writer must notify us if a poem is accepted for publication elsewhere or wins an award prior to our publication.

We will not edit poems and if the work is not up to the mark or lacking in grammar, it will be rejected.

Submissions may solely be sent via e-mail to: .
