We host writing contests in fiction and poetry and welcome international submissions. We juxtapose tradition with experiment, the up-and-comer with the established writer, and create a new dialogue.
**The Writer’s Hotel NYC Writer’s Conference is the editorial arm of the New Guard. The Writer’s Hotel meets in Midtown Manhattan each June. More info: www.writershotel.com. We also curate a lecture series, MFA IN A DAY: www.mfainaday.com. We support writers in practice and in print. Write better, publish smarter. Get inspired.
