Publisher’s description: We publish very short, experimental fiction paired with art. We like weird forms of literature: letters, receipts, lists, flash-fiction, parodies, vignettes, and other literary absurdities. We do not publish any stanza-form poetry whatsoever.

Margaret Atwood calls us "uncanny." The Guardian calls us "a wonderful repository of experimental lit." TheMillions.com says theNewerYork is "one of the most exciting places to read."

Our books are measured to fit in Levi's back pockets and printed on high-quality, sustainable paper-stock. We are reader supported on Kickstarter.com and post stories on our website daily.

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.
