Siskiyou Prize for New Environmental Literature

Type:Submission

Categories:Literature, Writing

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The Siskiyou Prize is named for the Klamath-Siskiyou region of northern California and southern Oregon, one of the most diverse eco-regions in the world. The Klamath-Siskiyou has the highest concentration of Wild and Scenic Rivers in the nation, the largest area of roadless wildlands in the Pacific Northwest, and the tallest old-growth trees on earth. Due to this large network of still-intact lands, the region is a refuge for fish and other wildlife that struggle for survival in other parts of the world. Considered a global center of biodiversity, the Klamath-Siskiyou region is an inspiring example of the importance of preservation.

All genres are accepted (for example, literary, mystery, YA, thriller), as long as the book has strong environmental/animal protection themes. Our top considerations are the environmental issues explored in the book as well as the quality of the writing. Both published and unpublished books are eligible for The Siskiyou Prize.

All submissions must be made online via Submittable and must include the following:

  • a cover letter with author’s full contact information, including name, address, phone number, and email address; if the manuscript is a collection of stories or essays, please include acknowledgments in the cover letter
  • the full manuscript, including a table of contents, if applicable
