      The Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction 2008

      The Ohio State University Press and  the M.F.A. Program in Creative Writing
      at OSU invite submissions for  the 2008 Ohio State University Prize in Short
      Fiction. Each year, a readers' committee of  OSU fiction writers and a final
      judge select one manuscript for publication by The Ohio State University Press.
      The winning author receives publication under a standard book contract, which
      includes a cash prize of $1,500 as an advance against royalties.

      ~Entries must be between 150 and 300 typed pages (approx. 40,000 to 80,000
      words) and  may include short stories, novellas, or a combination of both.
      ~Novellas must not exceed 125 pages (approx. 35,000 words); a single novella
      is not an eligible submission.
      ~The competition is open to all writers in English, published or unpublished.
      No translations unless done entirely by the author.

      ~Current students and employees of The Ohio State University are ineligible.
      ~Entries must be postmarked during the month of January 2008. Entries
      postmarked later than January 31, 2008 will not be accepted.

      ~Manuscripts must be typed. Clear photocopies of typed manuscripts are
      acceptable.

      ~Judging is anonymous, so your name or other identification should only
      appear on the cover page, and nowhere else in the manuscript. Your submission
      should include a cover sheet with name, street and email address, and phone numbers
      and a title page listing title and approx. word count (NO name, or
      identifying information)
              
      Please include a nonrefundable handling fee of $20.00 (U.S. dollars) with
      each manuscript (check or money order payable to The Ohio State University). If
      you wish, include a stamped, self-addressed postcard  to confirm receipt of
      your manuscript, and a stamped, self-addressed business-sized envelope so we can
      notify you of the results. OSU Press assumes no responsibility for lost or
      damaged manuscripts. Manuscripts will not be returned.

      Further details about the prize, eligibility, submission formats and previous
      winners can be found  on the Ohio State University Press website -
