There’s an interesting new series you should check out on the Prairie Schooner blog called “How a Book Happens.”
Each post consists of an interview with a winner of a prestigious book prize.
The interviews are conducted by Kristi Carter (the book prize coordinator for Prairie Schooner) and explore what goes into the preparation of a manuscript, details about the submission process, how winning affects the life of the writer, and the life of the book.
Have you ever submitted a manuscript to a book prize? What was the process like? Let me know in the comments section below.
