Last time we tried a contest, we received low entries. So, we came together and refigured the contest with the writer in mind. Offer a stunning writer's package to the winner, and make the entry fee affordable. We want you to succeed. Autumn Sparks is our annual book contest that looks for one book out of each genre.
All manuscripts must be unpublished. We welcome emerging writers. We welcome veterans. This contest is open to everybody -- affiliations do not matter.If we know you, you must submit under a pseudonym! If you are selected, then you may reveal your identity. We want to keep things fair. Former published authors may submit too.
Deadline: October 1st, 2014

Fiction: Short story collections, novels, novellas not exceeding 300 pages.

Keep U.P. Alive
Unsolicited Press is a beast that runs on good energy and dedicated editors and staff. Your donation helps pay these folks when books don't sell or we just break even. You see, our staff doesn't get paid until the bills and the authors are paid -- and sometimes that means we make pennies...we don't mind it, but your support really helps keep us afloat.

Listen to Literature
Most of our editors cherish our subscription with Audible. Right now they are offering free trials and a free audiobook. This is a great place to listen to Baxter's "The Art of Subtext." Think about it.
