12th Street, New School’s Undergrad Literary Journal, is looking for work exploring the intersections between writing and democracy. In the New School tradition, we consider this to be a broad exploration that can include overtly political pieces as well as more personal work.
The print edition of 12th Street is published once per year, and is sold through Barnes & Noble. We are looking for personal, political, and thought provoking fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and 2D visual art. For written work we recommend between 250 – 10,000 words, double spaced, with numbered pages. For visual art submissions, please send a high res (300 dpi) jpeg file and provide a checklist if submitting more than one image. Include details such as material, dimensions and title.
12th Street online runs new content weekly. We are looking for timely work, reviews of all things media, and experimental pieces that engage online readers in new and interesting ways. Please consider submitting videos, music, slideshows, pictures, interactive work, and written pieces that challenge what text can do online.
Submissions received by November 26th will be considered for both the print and online journal; work submitted after November 26th will be considered for online only. If you wish your work to be considered for print or online only please specify in your submission.
Undergrads looking to submit are encouraged to read previous 12th Street editions available at The New School Writing Center (room 510, 66 West 12th street) or by visiting www.12thstreetonline.com. All submissions are reviewed anonymously. Feedback is available for all work submitted regardless of whether or not if it is published.
You must be a matriculated New School Undergraduate to submit.
DO NOT include your name anywhere on the submission document itself.
Submit each piece as a separate document—unless you are submitting a series that you wish to be considered together.
