Staff & Acknowledgments

Literary Magazine 

New Square is the official publication of the Sancho Panza Literary Society, an independent society of ideas in residence each summer at the hauntingly beautiful and historic Trinity College Dublin.  Our Dublin program features ten days of intensive writer’s workshop and literary debate at Trinity, and is augmented by trips to Howth and the Irish Sea, plays at the Abbey, Gate, and Gaeity Theatres, visits to the Dublin Writer’s Museum, The National Art Gallery, and the Guinness Storehouse (all within walking distance from campus), and a full day excursion to the west of Ireland to visit Galway and the Cliffs of Moher.  The name “New Square” is derived from the section of campus where our participants reside during the workshop.


Subscriptions


 

The Sancho Panza Literary Society is publishing an associated journal beginning this Fall. For the inaugural issue, we need help from family and friends to build a subscription base and get off the ground. We're sorry to impose, and no good at asking for things but it’s a project worth doing, and if it stinks, we'll be the first ones sending out refunds. You have our word on that.



New Square will publish fiction, poetry, essay, film, music, and book review. Annual subscriptions are 28 dollars, and anyone who donates 50 or more dollars will receive a free subscription and be formally recognized as one of our benefactors in the print edition of the magazine. The first issue will publish on Dec. 15.

Call to Submissions


The Sancho Panza Literary Society is pleased to announce a call to submissions for its associated journal, New Square.  We will publish fiction, poetry, commentary/essay, obituary, and film, book, and music reviews, and the journal will be released bi-annually.  Submitters need not worry about fitting themselves into niches or conforming their writing to preordained or manufactured subcategories; we are looking for pathos, and will publish talent in all its forms.  The Fall issue will be released, both in print and online, on December 15th. We will consider submissions until November 1 for the Fall issue, but we accept submissions year round. The Spring issue goes to print on May 1, and that reading period closes on April 1.  Please see the submission guidelines below.

Submission Guidelines

All submissions should be sent by email to newsquaresubmissions@gmail.com.  The intended section (poetry, fiction, nonfiction/commentary, obituary, film, music, or book review) should be noted in the subject line of the email. Submissions will then be forwarded to the appropriate section editor. All submissions should include a full name and contact info on the first page of the document.  Poets may submit up to three poems, and prose submissions should not exceed 5,000 words (they can of course, be far shorter than that). Submissions can be part of a larger work—a novel excerpt for example—but they must be able to be read and understood in isolation. Submissions for the review sections (film, music, book) do not need to be about contemporary works; we’re not limiting the discussion in any way.

Music and Film Review Call to Submissions

New Square wants your music and film reviews! These do not specifically need to be reviews, we accept all ranges of submissions as long as the content is clear and honest. We are looking for pathos, and will publish talent in all its forms. New Square also publishes fiction, poetry, essay, obituary, and
book reviews. However, these make up the bulk of our submissions, so we’d like to spread the word to our local arts communities to gather more input for our music and film sections. We accept submissions all year round; the cutoff for Spring issue consideration is April 1st.

Submission Guidelines:

 All submissions should be sent by email to newsquaresubmissions@gmail.com.
 The intended section (poetry, fiction, nonfiction/commentary, obituary, film,
music, or book review) should be noted in the subject line of the email.
Submissions will then be forwarded to the appropriate section editor.
 All submissions should include a full name and contact info on the first page of
the document.
 Poets may submit up to three poems, and prose submissions should not exceed 5,000 words (they can of course, be far shorter than that).
 Submissions can be part of a larger work—a novel excerpt for example—but they must be able to be read and understood in isolation.

Funding

We’ve decided against charging a reading fee.  It is essential to us that writers can be sure that our motives are entirely artistic and legitimate. We are releasing a print edition, and do of course need funding to survive, but we hope to secure that through subscriptions and benefactor donations—not by charging writers. We hope you’ll consider donating and/or subscribing. For information about subscribing, please contact us at newsquaresubmissions@gmail.com., or visit us at blog.sanchopanzalit.com. Donations can be made via Paypal using the link paypal.me/sanchotrinity, or by searching the newsquaresubmissions@gmail.com email address on Paypal. We can also accept checks.  For those who prefer checks, simply contact us for mailing information. No donation is too small, and we are very grateful for any and all generosity—it allows us to do what we love.
