The Non/Fiction Collection Prize is awarded annually to a book-length collection of short stories, essays, or a combination of the two. The prize (which in previous iterations was known as the Sandstone Prize and The Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction) carries a cash award of $1500 and publication with The Ohio State University Press under its standard contract.
Submissions will be read from December 14, 2015 to February 14, 2016. Manuscripts may be no fewer than 150 and no more than 350 typed double-spaced pages. Individual stories or essays that have been previously published may be included in the manuscript, but manuscripts previously published as a whole in any format (including electronic or self-published) are ineligible. Each submission must include a list of acknowledgments of previously published work (title and magazine/journal/anthology) included in the manuscript.
