Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction


  [University of Georgia Press]

Main Library, Third Floor
320 South Jackson Street

Athens GA 30602




More than fifty short-story collections have appeared in the Flannery O'Connor Award series, which was established to encourage gifted emerging writers by bringing their work to a national readership. The first prize-winning book was published in 1983; the award has since become an important proving ground for writers and a showcase for the talent and promise that have brought about a resurgence in the short story as a genre. Winners are selected through an annual competition that attracts as many as three hundred manuscripts.
