THE NEW GUARD CONTEST GUIDELINES

Please submit a word document or PDF. International entries are welcome.  Simultaneous submissions are accepted, provided we’re notified upon publication elsewhere. Entrants have no submission entry limit. Each submission is carefully considered for publication. Please include your name on the first page of your contest entry. We will remove your name in the final stages of judging. Final judging is done blind, by that volume’s appointed judges.

We do pay strict attention to word and line count. Please submit previously unpublished work only. Any size print run or online publication (including blogs and/or social networking or video readings) disqualify an entry. Please note that we do not publish illustrations. We no longer accept entries via postal mail.

Finalists and semi-finalists receive one free copy of The New Guard; winners receive two copies. Winners and selected finalists and semi-finalists will be published in our print publication. TNG is not published online.

ABOUT THE NEW GUARD 

The New Guard is a contest-centered, independent literary review, publishing 35+ emerging writers each year. 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. Our Volume VII contests in Fiction & Poetry, judged by Chris Abani and Mark Doty, are open until August 31, 2017 (midnight in your country).

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 and MFA in A Day make up the editorial 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 and we also work with writers to develop their writing via our online component, Private Study. We are writers for writers’ sake.

At TNG, The Writer’s Hotel and MFA in A Day, we work diligently to support writers. Give us your ire, your lore, your guarded passage.
