Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Program

Recommended free contest gives $10,000 in each genre for books of literary fiction and nonfiction that have been accepted for publication by a US publisher.

Exceptions can be made for authors who have published more titles but who have not yet broken out to a wider audience. Must be submitted by publisher. No self-published books or e-books.
