Thank you to all who submitted work

Sincere thanks to everyone who made the 2022 Stenen Press Award competition such a resounding success! We look forward to announcing the winner during the first week of September.

If you are a writer in a language other than English, and you are interested in having your work translated and set into a richly visual book, we will warmly welcome your submission for the 2023 Stenen Press Award. Your manuscript must be complete, be original work, and be in a language other than English. The winner receives a $2000 award and publication of their book.

Manuscripts are usually between 20–80 pages. Submissions must also include a sample of the original manuscript (25%) translated into English. These translations, which can be sampled from any part of the book, should be representative of the project as a whole.


The next round of submissions will be accepted:

May 1 – June 30, 2023

Please note that Stenen Press does not accept submissions outside the Award period.
