How it Works

A simple break-down of our process.

First, all works go through a point-based screening matrix which narrows the entries down to the finalists.

Then we bring in industry professionals - literary agents, editors, publishers... to review the finalists and reach a consensus on the winners.

The winner is announced, awarded the prize, and connected directly with these literary gatekeepers.

Competition Guidelines

  • All submissions must be received by the deadline to receive consideration (Deadlines: Every 15th of December)
  • No genre restrictions
  • The format length has no minimum length, but a maximum of 30 pages, submissions which logically break this length will be disqualified (i.e. font smaller than size 11).
  • Your name and work title must be clearly printed on each work entered.
  • All submissions must be original, unpublished works at the time of submission. Plagiarism to any degree will result in disqualification.
  • Submissions with grammar or spelling errors may be penalized.
  • One entrant is allowed to enter multiple submissions. Any work entered without full entry fee will be disqualified. 
  • Entry fee must be paid full in USD and is non refundable.
  • For additional questions on the screening/judging process see the FAQ.
