Director's Note

Hello fellow NCW writers! I look forward to reconnecting with those of you I’ve met over the years and to getting to know the rest of you better as we move forward. You’ll find more information about me on the About NCW page and I invite you to reach out via email with your thoughts and feedback. My door is always open!

2019 NCW Anthology - Call for Submission

NCW is excited to announce a new mixed-genre anthology exploring the concepts of change, renewal, and rebirth. When things change, we experience a variety of emotions—from anger and fear to courage and hope. There is struggle and strife, but also the opportunity to rise from the ashes and create, grow, and love. Whether your specialty is poetry, fiction, or nonfiction, take us through the good, the bad, and the ugly of change. Click here for submission guidelines. 

Submission window: NCWC Attendees and NCW members may still submit. Login in to your account or check your email for a direct link to submit. 

Non-members: $15/submission

NCW Members: $5/submission (you must be logged in to your account and use the member submission form to receive the discount)
