2012 Fabri Literary Prize for Unpublished Novels

Although this opportunity is not for children’s book writers, I know that some of you have written adult novels and this is a wonderful opportunity for writers. 

Submissions for the 2012 Fabri Literary Prize now being accepted.  The contest is open to American novelists. Submitted manuscripts must be unpublished and written for educated adults with broad interests. Excluded from consideration are books for children or young adults and books that are focused on the religious market.

The Fabri Literary Prize recognizes the work of aspiring novelists by providing funds directly to authors, by publishing their novels in attractive trade editions, and by publicizing their work to literary reviewers, librarians, and booksellers.

The 2012 prizewinner will receive a publishing contract with a $7,500 advance and a $5,000 marketing budget. The winning novel will be published in the Spring of 2013 in a hardcover or trade paperback edition by Counterpoint/Softskull Press and distributed to the book trade by Publishers Group West.

Deadline for entry is June 15, 2012

Submissions guidelines:

Submit the first 50 to 100 pages of your unpublished novel in .pdf or Word file format.  No children’s, young adult or religious novels.

There is never a fee to enter.
