Submit your FICTION manuscript of 7,500-15,000 words here.
This year's fiction judge, DANZY SENNA, is the author of five critically acclaimed books of fiction and nonfiction, is the recipient of the Whiting Writers Award, and was recently awarded the 2017 Dos Passos Prize for Literature.
We seek works of fiction that are purposefully planned as chapbooks: novellas, long short stories, carefully curated collections of vignettes or short short stories, or other projects that take the chapbook format as an instrumental element of their design. Excerpts of novels or short story collections will not be considered unless they form a sustained and individual project in their foreshortened form.
Manuscripts should be paginated with a table of contents at the beginning, unless the form of the book does not warrant it. Please include a cover page with title of manuscript only. No identifying material should appear anywhere in the body of the manuscript. Your identifying information will be available to us via our submission manager when needed.
All entrants will receive a copy of the winning fiction chapbook upon publication.
Submit here by AUGUST 31, 2017 if your mailing address is in the United States or Canada.
