The Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival is inviting writers to submit Brooklyn non-fiction stories for the 2012 Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize.
The Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize, a cash award of $400, will be awarded to the best Brooklyn-focused non-fiction essay or short story 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 14th, 2012, Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival program in partnership with St. Francis College in the Maroni Theatre.
Submission Deadline – November 30th, 2012.
Entry Fee – Free
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.
Selected runners-up will be invited to read from their writing and their entries at the Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize event.
