Submissions should be sent by e-mail to the appropriate department, as indicated below:
The Talk of the Town: email@example.com
Shouts & Murmurs: firstname.lastname@example.org
We cannot accept submissions that are sent as attachments, so please send your work as part of the body of an e-mail. No more than one story or six poems should be submitted at one time. We prefer to receive no more than two submissions per writer per year, and generally cannot reply to more.
The New Yorker does not accept submissions by mail or by fax, and we cannot be responsible for the loss or return of unsolicited pieces. We do not consider simultaneous submissions or material that has been previously published.
We try to respond to all submissions, but, due to volume, we may take up to eight weeks to respond.
