About American Buffalo Books

2023 The American Buffalo Books Fiction Prize

Buffalo Books is a non-profit literary press affiliated with the Kansas State University English Department. We publish novels that explore the Midwest, the Plains, and the so-called flyover portions of the West.

Our first novel — Aaron Burch's Year of the Buffalo — was published in November. Our second novel — Cheryl Walsh's Unequal Temperament, the first winner of the American Buffalo Books Fiction Prize, will be published later this year, and Adam Galanski's Szarotka is forthcoming in 2024.

Submissions open on February 1 for 28 days or 100 submissions. 

We are open only to novels — from 40,000 to 80,000 words — that are set in or explore the Midwest, the Great Plains, and/or the alleged flyover portions of the West. Please do not submit work that does not fit this criteria.
