The Paris Literary Prize, an international novella competition for unpublished writers, is now accepting submissions for 2012. The Prize is sponsored by the De Groot Foundation and Shakespeare and Company, Paris’ renowned English language bookstore.
The three Paris Literary Prize awards are The Paris Literary Prize Award of 10,000 Euros and two runner-up awards at 2,000 Euros each. All three winners will be invited to a weekend stay in Paris to attend the Prize ceremony and read from their work at a special event at Shakespeare and Company.
Last year, the winner of the Paris Literary Prize was Rosa Rankin-Gee for The Last Kings of Sark; the two runners-up were Adam Biles for Grey Cats, and Agustin Maes for Newborn.
Submission deadline is September 1, 2012.
