      BOA Short Fiction Contest

      BOA EDITIONS, LTD.

      1st ANNUAL BOA SHORT FICTION PRIZE

      Judge: Peter Conners



      Initiated in 2007, BOA’s American Reader series has published fifteen
      short story collections. These collections feature voices more
      concerned with the artfulness of their writing than the twists and
      turns of plot. To commemorate the 35th anniversary of BOA Editions, the
      BOA Fiction Prize will be awarded to a collection of short stories. As
      with our poetry, the first criterion for publishing any book will be
      its artistic excellence.
