Manuscript Guidelines: In a single document with no contact information anywhere, include a two-page (maximum) outline of the entire novel and the first 50 pages of the novel. Submit as one document file. Do not submit more than 50 pages of the manuscript and two-page outline.
In the cover letter box include your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. This is the only area where your personal information should be included.
Then attach your two-page outline and 50-page novel.
The manuscript must be typed and double-spaced; outline may be single-spaced. Pages should be numbered.
The $33.00 entry fee includes a $3.00 processing fee.
The winner will be notified in September 2014. The first-prize winner must accept the award at the James Jones Literary Society Conference held every other year, usually in early November. Transportation funding will be provided. An excerpt from the winning manuscript will be published in Provincetown Arts (July 2015.)
