2024 Memoir Prize For Books

31 December 2023

Now accepting nominations for the 2024 Memoir Prize for Books!

  • Categories: traditionally published, self-published works, and unpublished manuscripts
  • Deadline: 31 December 2023
  • Total prizes: $5 000

Submit your full-length memoir for the Memoir Prize and stand a chance to win cash, a feature in Memoir Magazine, and a year’s worth of free advertising. It is the only contest of its kind dedicated exclusively to the memoir genre. This is a real opportunity for outstanding traditional, independent, and self-published memoir authors to get the recognition they deserve. Unpublished manuscripts will have the remarkable chance to present a prize-winning manuscript for consideration by agents and publishers.

You may submit a full-length book of memoir, narrative, or creative nonfiction, a collection of essays, or a graphic narrative as a single entry.

There are no restrictions on subject matter, page count, age of the author, type of publisher, or the year of publication.

Entries will be judged in three rounds: the first by experienced Memoir Magazine readers and staff, and the final two rounds by a select group of the previous year’s Memoir Prize Winners.

We can’t wait to read your story. Best of luck!
