    Description

    THE NEW GUARD is an independent literary review based in Maine. We proudly publish in print, with the exception of our online feature, BANG! , a page on the 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. The Writer’s Hotel is the editorial arm of The New Guard literary review. Via The Writer’s Hotel, we work with writers to develop their writing, online and in person at our Master Class Workshops. We are writers for writers’ sake.

    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. We do all we can to help our fellow writers.

    Give us your ire, your lore, your guarded passage.
