About

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.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.
Important: Limited Demographic: Submissions are restricted to US citizens or legal residents who are 18 or older [see their site for more details].

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
