FAQs

When is the final day that I can submit?

The contest ends at 11:59pm September 30, 2015.

What can I submit?

Please submit only stories or poems that have not been previously published. The only exception to this is if your work has only been published on your own blog.

Pictures must be yours and not subject to any copyrights.

What happens if I don't submit a photo?

If your essay is selected for inclusion in the book, a picture will be provided which is appropriate to the content of your piece.

How many submissions may I make? 

You may submit as many essays as you like! All submissions must be made through the submit form (here) and require the $20 submission fee, which helps offset the costs of book creation and production.

How do I know that my submission has been received?

A "Thank you" message will appear when your submission and fee have been processed, and an email notification will be automatically generated. Due to the high volume of responses, we are not able to communicate about individual submissions unless we need clarification or have other questions.

How will winners be selected?

Cookbook Love judges will evaluate all entries and choose 100 winners based on their ability to elicit emotion, convey a sense of time and place, and draw readers into a fully imagined scene.

When will I find out if I've won?

Winners will be notified by October 15.

What do I get if I win?

Contest winners receive one free copy of the book, and are eligible for periodic excerpting on the Cookbook Love blog and Facebook pages. Best of all, your words are immortalized in book form so that they can be shared with the world for years to come!
