the New Yorker - Fiction - Poetry

The New Yorker

I read somewhere once that the best practice for submitting one's work, is to start from the top and work your way down. The New Yorker, my friends, is definitely the top. As such, it is consistently listed as one of the most challenging markets to get your stuff into...but hey, you never know until you try right? :)

The New Yorker is a Pro market, with a capital 'P' - It accepts both fiction and poetry.

Submissions: Fiction, poetry, Shouts & Murmurs, and newsbreaks should be sent as pdf attachments. Do not paste them into the message field. -

*Note: To convert your files to PDF for free, try a free PDF Creator like PDF24:*

There is a lot of fiction and poetry that you can use as samples littered throughout the New Yorker website. All of the recent stuff is behind a paywall (ie you need to subscribe to the magazine), but it looks like pretty much everything that's a year old or older, can be viewed free of charge. If you have trouble with figuring out the search feature on the site, let me know :)

Additionally, the New Yorker also has a fiction podcast! It's a monthly reading of a work that has been publised in the magazine, with further discussion with the fiction editor. You can listen to and/or download episodes here:
And you can also subscribe to it's xml feed or on itunes
