The Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance invites submissions of works of fiction for the Maine Chapbook Series. MWPA will publish and promote the winning manuscript, and the emerging writer selected will receive $500 and 25 copies of the book. An image by a Maine artist will be selected for the cover, and the artist will receive a $500 prize. The deadline for submissions is October 31.

The Maine Chapbook Series is open to all current Maine residents, including part-time, seasonal residents who own a second home in the state. Only those who have not published a full-length fiction collection may enter; this does not include self-published works.

The judge will be Sigrid Nunez, who has published seven novels, most recently “What Are You Going Through.” She is also the author of “Sempre Susan: A Memoir of Susan Sontag,” winner of numerous literary awards, and teaches at Boston University.
