The Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize - Deadline November 15th, 2014
The Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival is pleased to announce the call for submissions for the 2014 Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize.
The Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize, a cash award of $500, will be awarded to the best Brooklyn-focused non-fiction essay which is set in Brooklyn and is about Brooklyn and/or Brooklyn people/characters.
We are seeking compelling Brooklyn stories from writers with a broad range of backgrounds and ages who can render Brooklyn's rich soul and intangible qualities through the writer's actual experiences in Brooklyn.
From the collection of selected Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize submissions, five authors will be selected to read from their work and discuss their Brooklyn stories with the audience at our December 2014 event.
The exact date/time and venue will be announced later.
These stories and several other submitted stories will be published on the Brooklyn Film and Arts Festival website and made available to the public.
Submission Deadline: November 15th, 2014.
Entry Fee: Free
The award is $500.
Submissions should be between 4 to 10 pages. (Up to 2500 words).
Send your Brooklyn Non-Fiction story as a Word document by email to: Brooklynfa@yahoo.com
Please include the story title, your name, email and phone number.
The submitted writings will be judged by a panel of Brooklyn writers.
Runners-up will be invited to read from their writing and their entries will be included in the Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival’s Brooklyn Non-Fiction Collection of stories in an online anthology.
