The New Guard
From the Editor
The New Guard is a contest-centered review. We run two contests, The Knightville Poetry Contest and The Machigonne Fiction Contest. Our current judges for Volume VIII are Rick Moody/Fiction and Patricia Smith/Poetry. We offer two prizes of $1,500 each and publication for a single poem or a single short story.
We are looking for exceptional works of poetry in any form. Submit up to 150 lines. The New Guard publishes the new writer alongside the established writer. We publish 35+ emerging writers each year.We accept .doc, .docx, and .wpd files. 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.
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.
