The Many Voices Project is the distinguished annual competition (since 1981) to find new and emerging writers. (An emerging writer has not published more than two books of creative writing with a commercial, university, or national small press.)
The poetry prize and the prose prize are open to anyone writing in English. The two winning titles are published by New Rivers Press and distributed nationally through Consortium Book Sales and Distribution. Each winning author will receive $1,000 and a standard book contract.
