The Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing searches for stories written by a first-generation immigrant. The publisher alternates years between fiction and non-fiction. This year they are searching to publish a tale of fiction. A few of the guidelines are:
- Completed fiction manuscript, or book-length collection of short stories.
- Candidates must be first-generation residents of their country.
- All submissions must be in English.
- Fiction candidates must not have previously published a book of fiction in English.
- Only one submission per candidate per submission period.
- $10,000 advance and publication by Restless Books in print and digital editions.
For complete guidelines and information on how to enter, go here. But hurry, the deadline is February 28, 2018. And as always, good luck!
