The NY Literary Magazine publishes the finest literary achievements in modern poetry by both emerging and internationally-recognized, award-winning poets from around the world. We are searching for outstanding talent, a beautiful play of words, emotionally stirring poems that have deep meaning and will withstand the test of time.

We strive to highlight talent and bring to light gifted poets of all ages and nationalities.
Our poetry magazines and anthologies are available as free-to-read digital editions and in print.

We publish 3 print Issues a year; in April, August, and December.

At the end of each year, the NY Literary Magazine nominates 6 talented writers (who were published in our magazine or poetry collections during that year) for the prestigious PushCart Prize, which is the most honored literary project in America.

The NY Literary Magazine also runs poetry competitions and writing contests.

If you have written an outstanding poem or short story send it to us for consideration.

Talented artists seeking exposure are welcome to submit their paintings or digital artwork to our magazine via this page.
