DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO September 30, 2018.
Hidden River Arts offers an award of $1,000, and publication on Hidden River Press, an imprint of Hidden River Publishing, for an original, unpublished book-length work of speculative fiction.
Please be aware that we consider ALL forms of publication as disqualification. Self-publishing is publication; if your manuscript has an isbn number, or if it is available for sale online and/or in brick and mortar stores, your book is “published”.
The deadline for all manuscript submissions is September 30, 2018. Entry fee: $22 US. This competition is open to international submissions for all writers in English. We accept simultaneous submissions, and ask only that you notify us immediately if your book has been accepted for publication elsewhere. We also accept multiple submissions.
All submissions must include name, address, telephone number, email, website (if you have one), a brief biography, outline, full synopsis and full manuscript. Online submissions through Submittable are required. Please note that, when submitting online, all materials must be combined into ONE document before uploading.
All awards are decided by Hidden River staff, and decisions are final. The semi-finalists, finalists and winner will be announced on this blog, so please be sure to bookmark us to keep up-to-date on our progress.
