Eaton Literary Agency’s Annual Awards Program
Eaton Literary Agency Awards $3,000 annually to authors through their Literary Awards Program. They accept manuscripts throughout the year. They try to report on your material within three weeks of receiving it. They have developed a system of grading the manuscripts for awards purposes, so they do not tie up submissions for the duration of the awards program.
> A $2,500.00 (US) prize will be awarded to the winner of their book-length program, open to all unpublished fiction or nonfiction over 10,000 words. Manuscripts must be postmarked by August 31, 2018, and the prize winner will be notified in September, 2018.
> A $500.00 (US) prize will be awarded to the winner of their short story and article program, open to any unpublished short story or nonfiction work less than 10,000 words. Manuscripts must be postmarked by March 31, 2018, and the prize winner will be notified in April, 2018
All qualified manuscript submissions to Eaton Literary Agency are automatically entered into the $3,000 Eaton Literary Awards Program.
They charge no reading fees, ever, but they ask that the following submission guidelines be followed. After reading your material, they will either accept it for presentation to publishers on your behalf, return it to you if they feel they could not place it, or, if they feel the material has a good potential but needs work to bring it up to their marketing standards, offer editorial assistance.
They accept novels, nonfiction books, short stories, and articles for presentation to publishers. They do not handle poetry, fillers, children’s material, stage plays, screenplays, newspaper material, partials, or queries. They must see your completed manuscript to make a decision.
