      The Prairie Schooner Book Prize Series Competition awards $3,000 and
      publication through the University of Nebraska Press for a book of short fiction and a
      book of poetry. One runner-up in each category will receive a $1,000 prize.

      We prefer that fiction manuscripts be at least 150 pages long and poetry
      manuscripts at least 50 pages long. Stories and poems previously published in
      periodicals are eligible for inclusion. Novels are not considered; one novella
      along with stories will be considered (please don't send single novellas or a
      collection of novellas).

      Xeroxed copies are acceptable. Please do not bind manuscripts with anything
      other than a binder clip or rubber band. The author's name should not appear on
      the manuscript. All entries will be read anonymously.
      Please send two cover pages: one listing only the title of the manuscript,
      and the other listing the author's name, address, telephone number, and email
      address.
      An acknowledgments page listing the publication histories of individual
      stories or poems may be included, if desired.
      No application forms are necessary.
      A $25 processing fee must accompany each submission, payable to Prairie
      Schooner.
      Please include a self-addressed postage-paid postcard for confirmation of
      manuscript receipt. Please use a standard postcard -- small index cards will not
      be accepted by the post-office.
      A stamped, self-addressed business size envelope must accompany the
      submission for notification of results.
      No manuscripts will be returned. All non-winning manuscripts will be
      recycled.
      Winners will be announced on or before July 1st, 2007. Results will be mailed
      shortly thereafter.

      Manuscripts should be mailed with a postmark between January 15th and March
      15th, 2008 to:
