Eaton Literary Awards Program

21 March 2010
Eaton Literary Awards Program
The Awards Program attracts entries from all over the world.

We accept manuscripts throughout the year. We try to report on your material within three weeks of receiving it. We have developed a system of grading the manuscripts for awards purposes, so we do not tie up submissions for the duration of the awards program.

A $2,500.00 (US) prize will be awarded to the winner of our book-length program, open to all unpublished fiction or nonfiction over 10,000 words. Manuscripts must be postmarked by August 31, 2010, and the prize winner will be notified in September, 2010.

How to Submit a Manuscript

All qualified manuscript submissions to Eaton Literary Agency are automatically entered into the $3,000 Eaton Literary Awards Program.

We charge no reading fees, ever, but we ask that the following submission guidelines be followed. After reading your material, we will either accept it for presentation to publishers on your behalf, return it to you if we feel we could not place it, or, if we feel the material has a good potential but needs work to bring it up to our marketing standards, offer editorial assistance.

We accept novels, nonfiction books, short stories, and articles for presentation to publishers. We do not handle poetry, fillers, children's material, stage plays, screenplays, newspaper material, partials, or queries. We must see your completed manuscript to make a decision.

Electronic Submissions must be e-mailed to us as an attached, single, complete file formatted in one of the following word processing formats:

Microsoft Word for Windows (*.doc)
Microsoft Word for McIntosh 4.0-5.1 (*.mcw)
WordPerfect 5.x (*.doc)
WordPerfect 6.x (*.wpd, *.doc)

Check your word processor's user's manual for possible "Save As" options to one of the acceptable formats.
