Publisher's description: Founded in 1983 and housed at the University of West Alabama, Livingston Press has had books reviewed in Kirkus, Booklist, and Publishers Weekly. We are especially interested in form in the novel, as long as a modicum of plot and character are involved. Our titles rarely feature genre work unless it moves above the genre, using it as a vehicle and not as an end.
For story collections, see our Tartt First Fiction Award information. Annually hosted, the contest's recent winners feature Amos Jasper Wright, John Shea, Maureen Millea Smith, and Tara Mantel.
