The Facing Project Press — Empathy Prize for Nonfiction
Established in 2021 with the publication of co-founder J.R. Jamison’s memoir, HILLBILLY QUEER, The Empathy Prize will be awarded by The Facing Project Press for a book-length work of nonfiction that embodies The Facing Project’s mission of creating a more understanding and empathetic world through stories that inspire action. We are especially interested in works that focus on connecting across differences, current events, and lifting up underrepresented voices, such as those not often heard around race/ethnicity, class, geography/culture, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and ability.
DEADLINE: Closed for 2023. Check back later for 2024-2025 submission dates.
ENTRY FEE: There is no fee to enter.
