Submissions January 1 through March 31, 2010

One winner and up to three finalists in each category will be published in 2011

Stephen F. Austin State University Press invites submissions of manuscripts each year for its fiction and poetry series. We are committed to publishing diverse kinds of fiction and poetry by a diversity of writers. The only criterion is excellence.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY):

1. The series is open to all book-length manuscripts by a single author of at least 150 pages of fiction or 60 pages of poetry.

Stories or poems previously published in periodicals or anthologies are eligible for inclusion.

2. The editor requests that faculty, staff, and current or former students refrain from submitting to the series.

3. Submissions will be accepted from January 1 through March 31, 2010. Please do not send revisions once you have sent a manuscript. Up to four manuscripts will be chosen in each category by July 31, 2010, one of which (in each category) will win the $1000 prize.

4. Manuscripts should be typed or machine-printed, double-spaced. Xeroxed copies are acceptable. Please do not bind manuscripts with anything other than a binder clip or rubber band. No electronic submissions will be considered.

5. There is a reading fee of $25 payable by check or money order to Stephen F. Austin State University Press. Please do not send cash.

6. Simultaneously submitted manuscripts are allowed provided we are notified immediately of acceptance elsewhere.

7. All entries will be judged anonymously. Please enclose two title pages with your submission: one page should include only the title of the manuscript and the other should list the title of the manuscript and the author’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and a brief, biographical statement. The author’s name must not appear anywhere else in the manuscript.

8. If you wish to be notified that your manuscript was received, please include an SAS postcard-small index cards will not be accepted by the post-office.

9. If you submit a #10 SASE along with your manuscript, you will be notified of our decisions by July 31. Otherwise, check our Web site in mid-August, where the winners will be announced.

10. Manuscripts will be recycled rather than returned.
