Submissions are now open for the DISQUIET Prize for writing in any genre, by a writer who has not yet published more than one book with a major press. Results are expected in early March. Three winners will be published in Granta.com (fiction), NinthLetter.com (non-fiction) or The Common (poetry).

One grand prize winner will receive a full scholarship, accommodations,  and travel stipend to attend the tenth annual DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon (June 26-July 8, 2022). Genre winners will receive $500 each in addition to publication.**

Deadline: January 24, 2022. Reading fee: $15

**Due to the special circumstances of this year we are unable to guarantee a place in our 2022 program to more than one winner. If we are able to do so, we will offer a place to our genre winners in addition to the publication and cash prize.
