The Deerbird Novella Prize is given annually to a work of no longer than 25k words. We aren’t looking for a particular style or type of story, we want to read something that will punch us in the gut with both powerful writing and a strong plot. We will NOT accept work over the 25k word limit. A good rule of thumb is if you can say something simply then do so.
Winning manuscript will be published in 2016
Winner will receive 10% of collected entry fees, 10 copies of the book, & a bundle of ADP books
