THE NEW GUARD is an independent literary review. We proudly publish in print, with the exception of our online feature, BANG!, a page on this site that publishes three short works by a single writer for a full month at a time.
The New Guard is here to showcase newcomers alongside established writers, and to juxtapose tradition with experiment to create a new dialogue. We publish all finalists and semi-finalists of our contests in our print-only journals, and we strive to feature at least forty debut writers in each issue. The Writer's Hotel makes up the the editorial and teaching arm of The New Guard literary review. Via The Writer's Hotel, we host a conference in NYC each June, The Writer's Hotel NYC Writers Conference. We also work with writers to develop their writing via our online component, Private Study. Write better, publish smarter. Get inspired.
Here at TNG and The Writer's Hotel, we work diligently to support writers. We will stand up and put on the gloves for those good stories and poems.
Give us your ire, your lore, your guarded passage. We are writers for writers' sake.
