The Firecrackers seek to celebrate and promote great literary works from independent literary publishers and self-published authors. We’re looking for language that smolders, crackles or explodes on the page. We’re looking for voices we’ve never heard and will never forget. The Firecrackers will spotlight books that make a permanent contribution to our literary culture and introduce them to readers far and wide.
Submissions in fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and young adult are due on December 15th.
Submissions for graphic novels have been extended to January 15th.
