We are open to different styles and genres, including genre-specific material such as science-fiction, horror, and fantasy. If you have a novel, we are willing to promote an excerpt on NLW, provided it is well-written.
There are no hard and fast rules about style or content – personally, I like a mixture of boldness, originality, and eloquence in the text, or a voice that is interesting and sheds new light on a subject.
Between 2,000 to 5,000 words. Make it gripping, make it last, make it satisfying.
A single poem is fine, but I would prefer a themed collection of up to three poems.
I’m always happy to receive articles on writing, editing, publishing, marketing, great books, great writers and so on. This includes writer interviews.
