Disquiet’s first book contest!

DISQUIET is pleased to announce its first book contest. Maybe you’ve heard that the world is crazy about borders and walls and such these days. Well our contest is looking for books that in some way constitute the opposite of that. Please send them to us!

<<<Established in 2017, the Dzanc Books/Disquiet Open Borders Book Prize seeks book-length manuscripts in fiction or nonfiction exhibiting a marked commitment to mutual understanding and cultural exchange across the globe. Dzanc Books and the Disquiet International Literary Program in Lisbon, Portugal, strive to promote literature that crosses boundaries and to advocate for a diverse, global literary discourse. The winning submission will be awarded a $5,000 advance and publication in Fall 2018 by the Disquiet imprint of Dzanc Books.>>>
