    The New Engagement is Accepting General and Prize Submissions!

    • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Art, Photography, Video
    • Type Magazine

    Founded in July 2016, The New Engagement is a monthly online and quarterly print journal that publishes original short stories, novel excerpts, poetry, essays, plays, as well as paintings, illustrations, graphic art, photography, and short films or feature film excerpts. The social consciousness in the work from our contributors comes from an intensely personal place. We at TNE believe that the personal IS political, that expression IS exploration, and that the autobiographical nature of the material we tout provides the foundation for cultural and societal examination. Though most of what we publish comes from the LGBTQI, POC, black, and indigenous communities, we also welcome submissions from those whose voices and visions fall outside those spheres. thenewengagement.com
