Nilson establishes prize for aspiring authors

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Author and editor Wedel Nilsen is providing a prize for aspiring authors who wish to have their work published by the Southeast Missouri State University Press.

Anonymous judges will read the submitted manuscripts and choose those to move to a pool of finalists, which will then be judged by a last critic.

The submissions must be of strong academic quality and also must be works of fiction. The contest is a nation-wide opportunity to U.S. residents.

The winner will receive a cash award of $1000, will have the opportunity to present the novel at a University reading, as well as a publishing deal with the SEMO Press.
