The Paris Literary Prize
The Paris Literary Prize is a biennial literary prize for unpublished novellas by new authors from anywhere in the world. It was founded in 2010 by the Paris-based Shakespeare and Company bookstore, and sponsored in collaboration with the de Groot Foundation. The €10,000 prize is for authors who have never published a book before, and their submission is a novella, defined as 20,000 to 30,000 words in length. The first winner was announced on 16 June 2011.
