Submission Guidelines for the Restless book Prize

  • The Restless Book Prize for New Immigrant Writing [hereafter referred to as “the Prize”] alternates yearly between accepting unpublished fiction and nonfiction submissions.
  • Fiction submissions can take the form of a novel or a book-length collection of short stories.
  • Nonfiction submissions can take the form of a memoir, a collection of essays, or a book-length work of narrative nonfiction.
  • The submission should address some combination of identity, the meeting of cultures and communities, immigration and migration, and today’s globalized society.
  • 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. “First-generation” 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.
  • The organizers encourage applicants to look at the other titles Restless has published and previous contest winners to get a sense of our aesthetic.
  • They will accept only one submission per candidate per submission period, and submissions must be under the author’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has been selected as the winner of the Prize, Restless will contact the author and ask that the manuscript be withdrawn from consideration elsewhere.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.

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

Required Documents

  • Candidates are asked to submit a CV and a one-page cover letter as the first pages of their manuscript. The cover letter should address the candidate’s background as a writer, experience as an immigrant, and inspiration for the submitted work.
  • Restless will accept only electronic submissions by way of our submissions manager.
  • The manuscript should be a PDF or Word file (.doc and .docx), and the text should be double-spaced, in twelve-point font, and with numbered pages. Fiction manuscripts must be a minimum of 45,000 words. Nonfiction samples must be at least 25,000 words.
  • There is no fee to submit a manuscript for consideration.
