Contest: The Novella Spectacular


Contest deadline: April 30, 2019

Winner announced: June 15, 2019

Got a NaNoWriMo masterpiece that doesn’t hit literary agent’s word count targets? Do you have an amazing short story that’s not so short and is actually kind of a book but not really? Are you sitting on a literary wonder crafted in the spirit of brevity with a complexity of story that has left you teetering between the realms of short story and novel? Galaxy Galloper Press is eager to read your work!

Calling all writers with a polished manuscript between 15,000 and 50,000 words! The Novella Spectacular is NOW open until April 30, 2019.

Please submit using the form below. All that’s required— your basic information, manuscript, and a $20 submission fee*. The form is considered your cover sheet/query letter. Any genre is welcome (literary, speculative, etc.), as our focus is the quality of the manuscript.

ALL contestants will receive feedback on their manuscripts and a copy of the winning novella. The winning writer will receive a book contract with Galaxy Galloper Press, some loot, and our undying admiration.

We look forward to reading your submissions and are eager to bring novellas back into the literary world. If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to the contest, please feel free to reach out to us at Thank you for being an awesome reader/writer.
