Submission window open for Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction

Submissions are open from April 1 to May 31, 2019.

Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction

“More than seventy short-story collections have appeared in the Flannery O’Connor Award series, which was established to encourage gifted emerging writers by bringing their work to a national readership. The first prize-winning book was published in 1983; the award has since become an important proving ground for writers and a showcase for the talent and promise that have brought about a resurgence in the short story as a genre.

Winners are selected through an annual competition that attracts as many as three hundred manuscripts. Submissions are open from April 1 to May 31 each year. Winners of the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction include such widely read authors as Ha Jin, Antonya Nelson, Rita Ciresi, and Mary Hood.”

Roxane Gay is the series editor.

Submissions are open from April 1 to May 31, 2019.
