DZANC CONTEST LONGLISTS ANNOUNCED

Guy Intoci

After weeks of intense reading, we're ready to release the longlists for the 2018 Dzanc prizes.

Narrowing down hundreds of talented submissions to this handful of longlisters was excruciating. We are grateful to all of the authors who trusted us with your work and gave us a chance to consider your hard-won manuscripts. We're sorry we can only honor a few of you.

Winners and finalists will be announced November 15.
