TNG is a contest-centered literary review. We run contests in Fiction and Poetry, and we also include a themed letters section in each volume. Each contest winner receives $1500/publication, plus two copies of TNG. Finalists are also published. Past judges and contributors include Chris Abani, Mark Doty, Charles Simic, Joe Wenderoth, Donald Hall, Adam Braver, Roger Bonair-Agard, Sharon Olds, Tim Seibles, Rick Bass, Tess Gerritsen, Afaa Michael Weaver, Maxine Kumin, Sven Birkets, Madeleine Blais and more. TNG Volume 2 included a previously unpublished Ralph Ellison short story, "A Storm of Blizzard Proportions," along with Photostats and an interview with John Callahan, Ellison's literary executor. TNG also runs a monthly feature of emerging writer's short work online, called "BANG!"
