Publisher’s description: theNewerYork Press interested in new literary forms. Our aim is to be experimental without being obtuse; to push the boundaries of the written word without pushing the boundaries of the readers’ patience, all while remaining relevant and entertaining. We publish short-forms only: aphorisms, flash-fiction, user’s manuals, surveys, lipograms, lists, punctuationless stories, upside down stories, inside out stories, press releases, book reviews, dialogues, scriptcerpts, and other absurdities.
Our magazine has beautiful graphic design, typography, and art from writers and artists all over the world. We're sold at all the big bookstores in Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco. Our magazine is measured to fit in the back pocket of your jeans.
In general, we do not publish straight up poetry and short-stories. We want to explore the infinite ways that we can use our words , letters, and languages to express ourselves! An entertaining orgy of narratives; we aim to be experimental without being obtuse.

theNewerYork is a magazine of experimental literature. The theme of our 2nd issue is the concept of madness and it might drive you insane. This 110-paged pocket-sized book contains absurd and very short-fictions: Nutritional information labels, reviews of fake books, a polite diatribe by a U.S. Marine (non-fiction), a letter from Katy Perry’s stalker, and other narrative chaos. It is made of high-quality materials and offers high-quality entertainment. Funded on Kickstarter, submissions based.
