Polish that unfinished manuscript you have and get ready to enter it in The Prairie Schooner Book Prize writing contest. Manuscripts should be at least 150 pages long and can cover one tale or be a collection of short stories. (Manuscripts that include several novellas are not admissible.) Details for submission (either hard or soft copies), including information around the $25 entry fee, can be found on the contest’s website.
Write fast, as the deadline to enter is March 15, 2015.
