Eligibility Criteria

  • Fiction manuscripts must be complete. Nonfiction submissions must consist of either a complete manuscript or a sample of at least 25,000 words and a detailed proposal that includes a synopsis and an annotated table of contents. All submissions must be in English (translations welcome).

  • Candidates must be first-generation residents of their country. โ€œFirst-generationโ€ can refer either to people born in another country who relocated or to residents of a country whose parents were born elsewhere.

  • Fiction candidates must not have previously published a book of fiction in English. Nonfiction candidates must not have previously published a book of nonfiction in English.ย We encourage applicants to look at the other titles Restless has published and previous contest winners to get a sense of our aesthetic.

  • We will accept only one submission per candidate per submission period, and submissions must be under the authorโ€™s real name, not under a pseudonym. Agented submissions are welcome.

  • Candidates may not submit the same manuscript for the Prize in subsequent years unless specifically invited by Restless.

  • Restless reserves the right to invite writers to submit for the Prize.

  • Restless reserves the right to consider any Prize submission for publication.

  • Submitted manuscripts may be simultaneously under consideration for publication by other publishing houses. Once a manuscript has been selected as the winner of the Prize, Restless will contact the author and ask that the manuscript be withdrawn from consideration elsewhere. A publishing contract between the winning author and Restless Books must be signed before the winner is announced.

* Please note that while Restless Books welcomes all submissions for the Prize, we do not accept unsolicited manuscripts for our publishing program.
