Welcome Allison Escoto, the new Associate Editor

With Tim Fredrick's tenure as editor of the journal coming to a close and Jackie Sherbow vacating the Associate Editor position to take the helm of the journal, we are pleased to introduce the new Associate Editor, Allison Escoto.

Allison Escoto is a New Yorker by way of the suburbs of Louisiana and, with the exception of a few, mostly regrettable exceptions, has lived in Queens since 2001. A librarian by day, copywriter and poetry tinkerer by night, she is so happy to become a part of the great team at the Newtown Literary!

You can reach Allison at (All submissions should still go through our submissions system, found at

We are also pleased to welcome Bard Hovenga to the journal as an assistant editor, and announce the addition of Meera Nair and Leona Godin to the editorial review board.
