Call for Manuscripts: California Historical Society Book Award

The California Historical Society is now accepting 2014 submissions for the CHS Book Award.

Deadline: 07-01-2014

The search is on for a book-length manuscript that makes an important contribution to scholarship and deepens public understanding of some aspect of California history.

The work must adhere to high scholarly and literary standards and must be lively and engaging to general readers. In addition to conventional works of historical scholarship, other genres will be considered, such as biographies, collections of letters or essays, creative nonfiction, and other stimulating literary forms.

The prize carries a $5,000 advance and publication by CHS/Heyday, with an awards ceremony, ample promotion, and an author tour throughout the state. Authors with manuscripts in progress or finished manuscripts are welcome to apply.

The deadline for submitting is July 1, 2014.
