Erthyglau


The majority of articles in New Welsh Review are specially commissioned by the editor, but if you have a proposal please email a brief synopsis (300 words maximum) in the first instance to the editor. Please include a brief biography. We pay in the region of £170 per article upon publication. You are welcome to communicate with the editor in either Welsh or English but submissions should be in English unless they are part of a translation project.

Mae'r rhan fwya o erthyglau yn New Welsh Review yn cael eu comisiynu gan y golygydd, ond os oes gennych syniad a wnewch chi ebostio'r golygydd gyda chrynodeb (hyd at 300 gair), gan gynnwys bywgraffiadol byr. Rydym yn talu oddeutu £170 am erthygl (telir adeg cyhoeddi). Mae croeso ichi gyfathrebu gyda'r golygydd yn Gymraeg neu Saesneg ond dylid cynigion fod yn Saesneg oni bai eu bod yn rhan o brosiect cyfieithu. Mae croeso ichi ohebu â’r golygydd yn Gymraeg ar unrhyw adeg.

Creative submissions: Cynigion creadigol
Please leave a gap of at least 3 months between submissions, and group those submissions together.
Gadewch bwlch o 3 mis o leiaf rhwng cynigion gwaith, a chasglwch y cynigion at eu gilled.

Email submissions of not more than six poems or one short story in any three-month period should be sent to . Please title your email ‘Submissions’, include the word 'Fiction' or 'Poetry' plus your name and attach your work as a separate word document containing the whole submission of poems or story; please ensure that each page is numbered and marked with your name and email address. We ask that you also include a covering letter.

Short stories must be typed, single-sided and double-spaced, in the region of 2,500 to 3,000 words, although we do on occasion publish shorter stories and microfiction.

Poetry submissions should consist of not more than six previously unpublished poems. Poems must be typed and single-sided. There are separate opportunities for poems to be included in our poetry showcase videos, but these are generally selected via the main submissions procedure: permission for poems fees are £28/poem.

We pay in the region of £100 for a short story and £28 for each poem, upon publication.

Publication should generally be swift following submission, although the editor reserves the right to publish work on a timetable which reflects the magazine's demands. Following the receipt of a contract letter, contributors will be informed of the scheduled publication date of their piece as it enters the production cycle, usually around two months before publication date.

Online Contributions


We warmly welcome submissions and ideas for online content. At present this is mainly in the form of short reviews (600-800 words), opinion pieces and author interviews based on the editor's recommendation (8-15 questions). Please contact the editor for ideas for new titles to review or offer your own titles or opinion piece ideas. Although we are unfortunately not able to pay for online content, it offers the opportunity for eventual publication within the magazine. Publication should generally be swift following submission, although the editor reserves the right to post reviews according to the site's and the magazine's demands.

Submissions of Books for Review


The general editor, Gwen Davies, selects books for review. Books may be in English (original language or in translation) or Welsh, although NWR does mainly review English-language titles. There are generally 12 reviews per issue, covering all categories with an emphasis on literature. The editor will not knowingly arrange to review self-published titles nor those that are not available in print in the UK. Submissions by publishers carry greater weight than those by authors. It is not recommended that publishers and authors make suggestions of reviewers' names. E-books are considered if supplied to the editor by the publisher in pdf format. Advance proofs, whether in pdf format or as bound proofs, are warmly welcomed, although it is the responsibility of the publisher to notify NWR of subsequent changes in their publication schedule. Decisions regarding reviews are made on a rolling basis but are made final, in respect of a new edition, around 3 weeks prior to publication date.
