                  4. Stories included in the submission may have appeared previously in
                      magazines or anthologies but may not have been previously published in
                      a book-length collection of the author's own work.
                  5. Authors may submit more than one manuscript to the competition for 
                      consideration as long as no material is duplicated between submissions.
                      Each submission will require a separate entry fee.
                  6. Manuscripts under consideration for this competition may be submitted
                      elsewhere at the same time. Please withdraw your manuscript if it is

                      refundable. 

                  Blind review: Manuscripts will be considered on the merits of the fiction and

Please do not include your name on the pages of the manuscript-only in the form boxes of the electronic submissions manager. The first page of the manuscript should include the title of the collection only. 
                Your message has been successfully submitted and would be delivered to recipients shortly.
