The Publishing Laboratory at the University of New Orleans seeks to bring innovative publicity and broad distribution to authors. We collect submissions from March 1 to August 31, deciding on 15-20 finalists. The finalists are read by students from The Publishing Laboratory in the fall, and one is chosen for publication.

There is no word limit. There is no restriction on subjects covered.

The selected author will receive a ten thousand dollar ($10,000) advance on royalties and a contract to publish with The University of New Orleans Press.
