The grand prize is $1,000, and one runner-up will receive $500. Authors retain all rights to their work. Winners will be offered a competitive book contract for full-market, frontlist release. There’s no obligation to sign this contract.
2040, a new imprint from the Santa Fe Writer’s Project, seeks work from multicultural authors or those from an ethnic background over the age of 18. International entries and translations welcome. All fiction and creative nonfiction will be eligible despite genre, form, subject, or length. So we’ll take full-length manuscripts, collections short or long, and essays. This year’s judge is Mat Johnson.
