The Studer/Ganz Foundation, established in 2005, promotes aspiring authors in Switzerland. In 2022, the foundation will offer a prize for the best unpublished prose debut manuscript in German-speaking Switzerland for the ninth time.
We are looking for unpublished German-language novels, short stories and novellas (not collections of texts) by authors who have not yet published a book of their own (with the exception of poetry) and who have Swiss citizenship or reside in Switzerland. Between the closing date (June 15, 2022) and the Foundation's notification of the jury's decision (September 30, 2022), the manuscript cannot be withdrawn, i.e. there is a blocking period for a publishing and/or agency contract. The winning manuscript will be awarded CHF 5000 and published by Lenos Verlag.
Closingdate: June 15, 2022
