F.A.Q

  • How do I enter? Submission Guidelines can be found here.
  • Can I enter if my MC is Latinx, but I am not? NO! This is a contest specifically for marginalized Latinx voices.
  • Can I enter if I’m mixed Latinx? Yes. Mixed voices have a safe space here, too.
  • Can I enter if I’m Latinx, but my MC is not? Of course. Marginalized writers should never have to focus only on their own background.

  • Which genres can enter? All.
  • Can I enter multiple manuscripts? No. Please keep only one submission per person to give everyone a chance.
