      The Iowa Short Fiction Award and the
      John Simmons Short Fiction Award

      Eligibility

      Any writer who has not previously published a volume of prose fiction is
      eligible to
      enter the competition. Previously entered manuscripts that have been revised
      may
      be resubmitted. Writers are still eligible if they have published a volume of
      poetry or
      any work in a language other than English or if they have self-published a
      work in a
      small print run. Writers are still eligible if they are living abroad or are
      non-US
      citizens writing in English. Current University of Iowa students are not
      eligible.

      Manuscript

      The manuscript must be a collection of short stories in English of at least
      150 word-
      processed, double-spaced pages. We do not accept e-mail submissions. The
      manuscript may include a cover page, contents page, etc., but these are not
      required. The author’s name can be on every page but this is not required.
      Stories
      previously published in periodicals are eligible for inclusion. There is no
      reading fee;
      please do not send cash, checks, or money orders. Reasonable care is taken,
      but we
      are not responsible for manuscripts lost in the mail or for the return of
      those not
      accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. We assume the author
      retains
      a copy of the manuscript.

      under
      the Press’s standard contract.
