CONTEST GUIDELINES

How to submit:

In order to reduce the costs of printing and postage and in the spirit of being a bit greener, Black Lawrence Press now accepts electronic submissions rather than hard copies for our contests.

Please include the following in your electronic submission:
-A cover letter with brief bio and contact information including your e-mail address(es)
-A .rtf, .doc, or .pdf attachment including a title page, an acknowledgments page, a table of contents, and your manuscript with numbered pages.

Email your submission to editors@blacklawrencepress.com. Please include your name, manuscript title, and genre in the subject line of your email following this format:
J. D. Salinger "9 Stories" (Fiction).

Please submit your $15 entry fee via Paypal.

Deadline:

The annual deadlines for the prize are May 31 and October 31.

About the judges:

Black Lawrence Press does not use interns to screen entries. All entries are judged by the editors.

Notification:

Because of the high volume of entries received, all finalists and semi-finalists will be announced
on the Black Lawrence Press blog. All finalists for the fall prize will be announced on or before December 15 of each year. All finalists for the spring prize will be announced on or before July 15 of each year. The winners will be announced shortly after the finalists are announced.

Other Notes:

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but you must notify Black Lawrence Press immediately if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere for publication.

All finalists will be considered for standard publication. In addition to each year's winner, Black Lawrence Press often offers standard publication to one or more other finalists.

Thank you for your interest in Black Lawrence Press.
