Synopses & Reviews
theNewerYork is a series of books curated and designed to challenge the literary triumvirate: novels, short-stories, and poetry. We publish new, forgotten, and weird forms of literature; short-fictions that will move you. Our book fits in your back pocket and is filled with art, illustration. typography and graphic design. The writers and editors of theNewerYork believe there are infinite ways to use language to express ourselves. We hope to build a stage for existing experimental writers, ultimately inspiring other writers and creators to explore their own boundaries.
Our alt-lit publication is entirely submissions based and funded on Kickstarter.com. In the past we have published new or overlooked literary forms such as epistolaries, users manuals, epigrams, fake reviews of fake books, fake press releases, fictional glossaries, flash-fiction, lists, literary equations, upside down stories and inside out stories. Each volume of theNewerYork contains over 30 narratives that will leave you entertained and inspired.
