We're pleased to announce the first annual New American Press Fiction Contest. Winner receives $1000 and 25 copies (additional copies available at a 30 percent discount).
The final judge will be Lee K. Abbott, whose fiction has appeared in numerous journals and magazines such as Harper's, The Atlantic Monthly, The Georgia Review, The Southern Review, Epoch, Boulevard, and The North American Review. His work has also been reprinted in The Best American Short Stories and The Prize Stories: The O'Henry Awards. He has twice won fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and was awarded a Major Artist Fellowship for his writing from the Ohio Arts Council in 1991. His latest collection of stories, All Things, All at Once: New & Selected Stories, was published by Norton in June 2006.
