Submissions to the 2022 Prairie Schooner Raz-Shumaker Book Prizes Contest are now open!
Winners will receive $3000 and publication through the University of Nebraska Press.
Fiction manuscripts should be at least 150 pages long and poetry manuscripts at least 50 pages long.
Also, novels are not considered. However, Book Prize will consider manuscripts comprised either entirely of short stories or one novella along with short stories.
Manuscripts may contain stories or poems that have been published in journals or in chapbook form; however, if the full-length manuscript includes work from a previously published chapbook, the majority of the manuscript must be additional work not appearing in the chapbook.
Prairie Schooner accepts electronic submissions as well as hard copy submissions.
A $25 processing fee must accompany each submission, payable to Prairie Schooner.
For information on submitting to the journal, please see our submission guidelines.
