Fence Modern Prose Prize

Dear Friends,

Fence Books announces a new book contest, the Fence Modern Prose Prize, which awards $2,500 plus publication to a book-length work of prose. In 2013 the prize will be awarded to a novel.

We will be accepting entries during the month of November 2012. The submission fee is $28, and all entrants will receive a complimentary subscription to Fence. The winning manuscript will be published in the spring of 2014.

The inaugural Fence Modern Prose Prize will be judged by Rivka Galchen. Galchen's stories and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, The Believer, Harper's, and elsewhere. Her novel, Atmospheric Disturbances, was published in 2008 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux and was named a finalist for Canada's 2008 Governor General's Award. She currently teaches at Columbia University. Galchen is guest fiction editor of Fence's Fall 2012 issue, due out mid-November.
The Fence Modern Poets Series will be running in February of 2013 as per usual.

Please forward this announcement to all interested parties. Please direct any inquiries to robfence at gmail dot com.
