Black Lawrence Press is seeking unpublished novel submissions for The Big Moose Prize.

The winner of this contest will receive book publication, a $1,000 cash award, and ten copies of the book.

Entries are read by senior Black Lawrence Press editors and a rotating panel of former Big Moose Prize winners. That panel currently includes:

-Tracy DeBrincat, author of Hollywood Buckaroo

-Ron Nyren, author of The Book of Lost Light

-Jill Stukenberg, author of News of the Air

The deadline to submit is January 31, 2024. See full submission guidelines.
