Our 2012 contests will run from March 1-June18, 2012. Entries are $15.

KNIGHTVILLE POETRY CONTEST: $1,000 for an exceptional work of narrative
and/or experimental poetry. Three poems per entry. Up to 300 lines per
poem. Judged by National Poetry Series winner JEANNE MARIE BEAUMONT.

MACHIGONNE FICTION CONTEST: $1,000 for an exceptional work of literary
and/or experimental fiction. Submit up to 7,500 words: anything from flash

as a stand-alone story. We do not publish illustrations. Judged by Novelist

The New Guard 2012 contest readers are looking forward to reading your
work! You can submit online via our submissions manager or by postal mail
with a check for the entry fee. Contest winners and all finalists get two
free copies of TNG, and each submission will be carefully considered for
publication. Final judging is done blind. We accept .doc or similar
files–no PDFs, please. We do pay strict attention to word and line count.
We are not presently accepting submissions aside from our contests. TNG
accepts previously unpublished work only.
