A first-place prize of $2,000, a second-place prize of $1,500, and a third-place prize of $1,000 will be given annually for the first five pages of a work of fiction or creative nonfiction. Developmental editing support and an agent consultation will also be awarded to all winners. Writers who are not represented by a literary agent are eligible.
