Call for Submissions

All NYU students and recent graduates are invited to submit work for consideration. Submissions must be uploaded before 11:59 GST on November 1, 2019. All entries will be judged anonymously.

Before submitting, please read the guidelines below. The submission link is at the bottom of the page.


Text documents should be submitted in Microsoft Word .docx format. Generally, the maximum length for prose pieces is 3000 words. If your text requires special formatting, please also attach a PDF version. The editorial staff, however, will not consider submissions that are submitted only in PDF format.


If you are submitting an image (painting, photograph, drawing) please make sure that your image is titled, even if that title is “Untitled I.” The image must be in JPG or TIF format and in the highest resolution available.

Please name your files according to this protocol: authorsurname-title-twodigitnumber.

for example


Airport Road accepts submissions in all languages. However, because the shared language of our readership and our editorial board is English, we ask that you include an English language translation alongside your submission. We encourage translational collaborations, such as the same text translated into multiple languages by various people.


If you are submitting multiple entries (whether text or image), please make sure that each entry is submitted separately. Doing so will enable us to review your work more easily and accurately.


You will be asked to create an account on the Submittable site. The email address you provide will only be used to contact you regarding your submission.
