Paris Baby!

The Paris Literary Prize is an international prize for unpublished authors, awarded for a novella. It's now open for submissions (in the range of 17,000 - 35,000 words).
Deadline: September 1st.

"We have long been admirers of the novella, a genre which includes such classics as The Old Man and the Sea, Animal Farm and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. The Paris Literary Prize celebrates this small but perfectly formed genre while giving a unique opportunity to writers whose voices have not yet been heard."

There are three Paris Literary Prize awards:
-The Paris Literary Prize award: 10,000 Euros
-Two Paris Literary Prize Runner-up awards: 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.
