Announcing the Dzanc Books Prize for Fiction

Guy Intoci

The Dzanc Books Prize for Fiction recognizes daring, original, and innovative writing. A $10,000 advance and publication in Fall 2017 by Dzanc Books will be awarded to the winner. Finalists will be compiled in-house and passed along for evaluation by this year’s judges: Carmiel Banasky (The Suicide of Claire Bishop), Kim Church (Byrd), and Andrew F. Sullivan (Waste).

The contest is open to new, upcoming, and established writers alike. Agented submissions are also eligible. All submitted works must be previously unpublished novel-length manuscripts and should include a brief synopsis, author bio, and contact information. The full work should be formatted as a Word .doc or .docx file free of page numbers, headers, or footers.

We will accept submissions from April 1st, 2016 through September 30th, 2016 via our Submittable page. There is a $25 submission fee. (Note: we will not accept physical entries.) The winner will be notified directly on November 1st, 2016, and a public announcement will follow on the Dzanc Books webpage. 

Dzanc Books is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. All contest fees will go toward funding the prize as well as supporting Dzanc's commitment to producing quality literary works, providing creative writing instruction in public schools through the Dzanc Writers-in-Residence program, and offering low-cost workshops for aspiring authors.

In addition to the inaugural Dzanc Books Prize for Fiction, the annual short story and nonfiction contests will run during the same period. For more details or to enter your submission for any of the Dzanc Books prizes, please click here.
