Here’s a brief tour of some of the features on this site, which has been made possible by NER’s support from Middlebury College and a grant from The National Endowment for The Arts (NEA). The site is designed to complement the print magazine while developing NER’s relationship with digital culture.
NER on Your Reader, Browser, or Blog
You can add NER to your Google Reader, Safari Reading List, or similar. On the Google Reader, simply click on Subscribe, then type New England Review into the box and press Add. On Safari, visit this site and then click on Add Page.
Read NER Web Features in Issuu View
For work featured in current and future issues, browsers will be able to read NER’s web features as a web page or in the Issuu view. (Click on “view as pdf / Issuu” of a newly published work like Jordan Davis’s poem “From the Twentieth Floor” for an example.) Issuu’s fun-to-navigate document mimics the pages of the print magazine. You can “flip through” the pages, magnify, print, or share the work via social networking sites. (Big thanks to Middlebury intern Patrick D’Arcy for pointing us in this direction.)
If you like to browse the web on your phone, this site will translate into a functional format you can navigate using Categories, Tags, or a basic Timeline. Touch the links and you can read NER’s stories, poems, and essays. You can also add NER’s icon to your home screen for easy access.
Sharing Writing From NER
The buttons at the bottom of each post or page make NER easy to share via social networking sites or email.
NER on Twitter and Facebook
You can get updates from NER in your Facebook stream by Liking the magazine on our FB page, or in your Twitter feed by Following NERweb. (N.B.: Comments, replies, lists, followers, retweets, mentions, and the like do not imply any endorsement by or association with NER.)
While You’re Here
We hope you enjoy exploring the new site. The most vital way you can support NER in 2012 is by subscribing to the magazine and by making a donation beyond the subscription price, via Middlebury’s convenient and secure online giving page (be sure to select New England Review from the drop-down menu Direct Your Gift). Your gift to NER – described as “among the nation’s best” literary magazines by The Boston Globe – will have an immediate impact, fostering the publication of brilliant new poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
