Calling all English writers

The DISQUIET Literary Prize

Submissions are now open for the DISQUIET Literary Prize! This contest is for writing in any genre, by a writer who has not yet published more than one book.  The first prize winners in each genre will be published:

One grand prize winner will receive a full scholarship including tuition, lodging, and a $1,000 travel stipend to Lisbon in 2021.

In the event the 2021 Lisbon program can't be held due to coronavirus restrictions, we offer an alternative cash prize: genre and grand prize winners can either choose to delay the prize trip to a future year or accept a substitute cash prize of $1,000 each.

Read the full contest guidelines or enter at Submittable.

Deadline: January 15, 2021. Reading fee: $15

The Denis Johnson STAGAYA & Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen Scholarships and Luso-American Fellowship competitions will be paused for 2021. We look forward to resuming these awards in 2022.
