A prize of $15,000 is given annually to a U.S. writer to honor a work of fiction published in the previous year. Additional prizes of $5,000 each are awarded to four finalists. Lee K. Abbott, Randall Keenan, and Antonya Nelson will judge. Publishers, agents, or authors may nominate novels or short story collections published in 2008 by submitting four copies of each book (or bound galleys) by October 31. There is no entry fee.
