I have no idea how it is June 3rd already. This year has done strange things with time. In some cases, COVID isolation has caused one day to bleed into the next giving the past year a sense suspended animation.
To recognize the strange things that are happening to time, we have decided to leave submissions open for poetry and non-fiction until Sunday night at midnight. Fiction will remain open, of course.
So, if you have had something that you were thinking about submitting, please do so! After Sunday, submissions for poetry and non-fiction will reopen in August.
Finally, as you likely know, these days are particularly challenging for many cultural institutions, publishers, and little magazines. So even if NDQ doesn’t float your boat, If you can, consider buying a book from a small press, subscribing to a literary journal (like our UNP stablemate, Hotel Amerika), or otherwise supporting the arts.
