Enter for the Raz-Shumaker Prairie Schooner Prizes for Fiction & Poetry

The Raz-Shumaker Prairie Schooner Book Prize Series is accepting submissions for fiction and poetry. All writers working in the English language are invited to submit to the Prize, which is run by the literary magazine Prairie Schooner and the University of Nebraska. Each of the prizes is worth $3,000.

Submitted poetry collections should ideally be around 50 pages, and while previous poems can find new homes in the submissions, whole collections cannot, even if self-published.

The same rule applies to works of fiction.

The prize has interest in short story collections and even novellas.

All final manuscripts will be chosen by Prairie Schooner editor-in-chief Kwame Dawes.

Deadline for submissions is 16 March 2021.

Submit HERE.
