We've got some big news... Cosmonauts Avenue is thrilled to announce that 🌜 the 2017 fiction prize🌛 is now open for submissions!
Our judge is the incredible 🦋 Porochista Khakpour 🦋, author of the forthcoming memoir Sick (Harper Perennial, May 2018), and the novels The Last Illusion (Bloomsbury, 2014)—a 2014 "Best Book of the Year" according to NPR, Kirkus, Buzzfeed, Popmatters, Electric Literature, and more — and Sons and Other Flammable Objects (Grove, 2007).
What kinda fiction are we looking for? Whether it's the dystopic near future, an epistolary love story, autofiction, coming of age, a tale of two puppies, a story of war on another planet or one about being human in 2017, we want work that elevates and amplifies underrepresented voices, work that is warm, thoughtful, dark, light, devastating, funny, & necessary.
