The competition is for previously unpublished work only. Self-published and print-on-demand books are considered published unless authors can present current, precise documentation that less than 500 copies have been sold. If a self-published manuscript should win a category, the cash prize offered for that category will be decreased by one third. Considered as published and ineligible are books, stories, essays, and poetry previously published in their entirety on the Internet.

Please pay special attention to labeling your entries. We do not read entries in any category without proper labeling.

Entries are accepted now in eight categories (see below): Novel, Novella, book-length Narrative Non-Fiction, Novel-in-Progress, Short Story, Essay, Poetry, and Short Story by a High School Student. Overall goals of the competition are to seek out new, talented writers and assist them in finding literary agents and, ultimately, publishers for their work.
