Editorial Focus

We are a literary review and host international contests. We juxtapose tradition with experiment, the up-and-comer with the established writer and create a new dialogue. **The Writer's Hotel is the editorial arm of TNG. Via The Writer's Hotel, TNG's crew hosts a Master Class in prose in NYC and also offers editorial services and private study. TNG & The Writer's Hotel are writers for writers' sake. "Give us your ire, your lore, your guarded passage."
