Event Details

The competition is organized by the Restless Books, an independent, non-profit publisher located in Brooklyn, New York. Participants must be first-generation residents of their country. “First-generation” can refer either to people born in another country who relocated, or to residents of a country whose parents were born elsewhere.

The submission should address some combination of identity, the meeting of cultures and communities, immigration and migration, and today’s globalized society.

This year, the competition is open to nonfiction submissions.

Nonfiction submissions can take the form of a memoir, a collection of essays, or a book-length work of narrative nonfiction.

Authors must not have previously published a book of nonfiction in English.

All submissions must be in English.
