Hey Kids!
Become a NewPages reviewer.

NewPages accepts flash reviews for publication on our blog year-round.

What We're Looking For:

Send us flash reviews (100-200 words is great; 300 words max) on the latest literary magazine, book, or individual piece(s) of writing you've read recently and would love to share. Give us something short and sweet, but with substance.

Your reviewer bio can include a link to your blog or web URL to let our readers discover more about your work.

We're fond of books from small presses and new magazine issues or work, the more recent the better.

The usual ethics apply: no gratuitous promotion of friends, family, current teachers, publishers you have submitted works to, etc. If you know the author but believe your review is a fair critique, please disclose that relationship.

If you are not familiar with the short review, you can find examples here.

How to Submit:

Send reviews to Katy Haas with "Review" somewhere in the subject line.

What Next?:

If your submission is accepted, we will clean up minor errors, and it will appear on the NewPages blog within the next two weeks. We will also link to reviews via our social media, so please let us know how and where we can tag you.

There is no payment at this time, just the standard fame and glory.

NewPages retains the rights to the review, so please do not republish it elsewhere. You are encouraged to give the review a shout-out with a link via your own networks and be sure to tag NewPages:
