Henniker Review seeks creative writing and visual art submissions


The Henniker Review, a creative literary magazine that has been published by NEC for the community for more than 50 years, is accepting submissions.

“The Henniker Review is a literary magazine that showcases the writing and visual art from members of the community and beyond. So, it’s not just a publication focused on publishing New England College students,” MacNeil said. 

The publication has contributors from all around the greater New Hampshire area, and in the past, has had writers from as far as California.

The Henniker Review is not only for literary art, it also features photography and visual arts.

“This year were working closely with the visual art folks, trying to solicit work from the visual artists. We’re hoping that it’s going to be a really nice balance of text and images,” MacNeil said. This is not the first time the Henniker Review has included visual art, as it has been included in past editions as well. 

Anyone interested in getting published needs to follow a set of guidelines:

  • Work cannot be previously published
  • The subject line must include the author’s last name
  • Include a short biography (fewer than 30 words)
  • Attached written work as Microsoft Word document, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, double spaced
  • No more than three poems (each on a separate page)
  • Fiction and nonfiction can be up to 2,500 words
  • No more than three .jpg images in color or black and white

The Henniker Review has a yearly launch party for its contributors in the IAD gallery in Henniker.

“We try to get it printed and on campus at least a couple weeks before graduation and we have a launch party in the IAD gallery, that is how we have traditionally done it. The contributors can come, and we have a nice gathering for people to come and celebrate everyone”, MacNeil said.

The 2024 edition of the Henniker Review will be available in the spring.
