The University of New Orleans Press is excited to announce that their fourth annual UNO Press Publishing Lab Prize is now open!
They are looking for full-length fiction manuscripts, either novels or short story collections. The selected author will receive a thousand dollar ($1,000) advance on royalties and a contract to publish their winning manuscript with UNO Press.
The work does not have to be regionally focused. There is no word limit. There is no limit on subjects covered. Submissions are open until August 15.
More information, including the Submittable link, can be found at:
The first winner of the Lab Prize, Margo Littell, published her debut novel with the Press, Each Vagabond By Name. Melanie McCabe’s first book of nonfiction, her memoir His Other Life: Searching for My Father, His First Wife, and Tennessee Williams, became their second winner. And this fall, UNO Press will publish, as the Lab’s most recent winner, Meghan L. Dowling’s first novel, A Catalogue of Small Pains.
