Initiated in 2007, BOA’s American Reader Series has published more than 10 short story collections. These collections feature voices more concerned with the artfulness of their writing than the twists and turns of plot. The BOA Short Fiction Prize was established in 2010 as a way to further BOA’s Mission to bring high quality literature to the public.
