Dzanc Books

Full details 

Dzanc Books solicits submissions through three annual contests:
  • the Prize for Fiction, which recognizes novels that are daring, original, and innovative, and offers a $5,000 advance and publication;
  • the Short Story Collection, which seeks well-crafted and powerful book-length collections and offers a $2,000 advance and publication;
  • and a final contest which changes from year to year. This year, we will offer a Diverse Voices Prize, seeking book-length literary fiction and nonfiction from writers in minority, underrepresented, or marginalized communities. The Diverse Voices Prize offers a $3,000 advance and publication. This contest does not have a reading fee.
Our contests open April 13 and close September 30. The winner of each contest, along with a short list of finalists, will be announced in by the end of the year.
Please note: At this time, we are not seeking submissions of poetry or YA/children's fiction.
For any questions about the contests or our submissions policy, please email We look forward to reading your work.
