The Drue Heinz Literature Prize is open to writers who have published a novel or a book-length collection of fiction with a reputable book publisher, or a minimum of three short stories or novellas in magazines or journals of national distribution. Digital-only publication and self-publication do not count toward this requirement.
Free to enter.
The award is open to writers in English, whether or not they are citizens of the United States.
Eligible submissions include an unpublished manuscript of short stories; two or more novellas (a novella may comprise a maximum of 130 double-spaced typed pages); or a combination of one or more novellas and short stories. Novellas are only accepted as part of a larger collection. Manuscripts may be no fewer than 150 and no more than 300 pages.
Deadline: June 30, 2020
The winner will receive $15,000 and publication by the University of Pittsburgh Press under its standard contract.
