One poet and one fiction writer from New Jersey will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City, where they will meet with agents, editors, and prominent writers, and give a public reading of their work. The winners will be selected by Sophie Cabot Black (poetry) and Nahid Rachlin (fiction).
The contest is open to poets and fiction writers who:
- Have never published a book, or
- Have published no more than one full-length book in the genre in which they are applying, and
- Have resided in New Jersey for at least two consecutive years prior to the date they submit their manuscripts.
