We are low on submissions, and we can only fulfill the prize money if we have enough submissions, so please, please, please, spread the word! It’s a niche genre, but SO IMPORTANT to the world, in our humble opinion.

Cosmographia announces the inaugural Cosmographia Prize for Spiritual Fiction for an unpublished novella of spiritual fiction. The winning manuscript will be published by Cosmographia Books, and will receive $500. The deadline for all manuscript submissions is September 15, 2018. Winner will be announced by end of year. Entry fee: $25 US.

THE IDEA
Spiritual fiction comes disguised in many genres: speculative (A Wrinkle in Time), historical (Siddhartha), allegory (The Alchemist). But we always recognize it by the way it makes us feel. Spiritual fiction does more than entertain. It does more than instruct. It transcends. It offers energetic healing, spiritual clarity, and a deep level of awakening to those who it is meant for.
Think:

  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  • A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
  • The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield
  • Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach 
  • Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach
  • Diana, Herself, by Martha Beck
  • Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
  • One by Richard Bach
