From the new graffiti website: "Poetry gone Guerrilla Warfare, that sums up new graffiti: Literature on the Streets. Once a month new graffiti puts good writers/artists, established and virgin, in the public’s face…literally. And I don’t mean “literally” the obnoxious and incorrect way many people often use it. new graffiti gets fantastic and beautiful poetry, fiction, essays and art posted, plastered and printed in all kinds of public spaces. The ultimate mission of new graffiti is to get good literature and art under the public’s eyes and get everyday people familiar with some of the people destroying themselves to create this art." Previously new graffiti: Literature on the Streets has been open for submissions for two weeks out of every month; this is changing. We will now be accepting submissions twice a year (April 1-30 and Oct 1-30). In addition, starting with our April submission period new graffiti: Literature on the Streets will be accepting submissions (of both art and writing) from anywhere across the globe; though, our March and September issues will still be dedicated to writers/artists from Utah.
