QUESTION: Is book length prose only open to young adults? That’s the way it looks on the form. I have not been a young adult for quite some time so I hope this is not so.

ANSWER: Book length prose is any prose, fiction or nonfiction, young adult or full fledged adult work, that is of book-length (over 90,000 words, approximately). It encompasses young adult as a possible genre, but it is for any prose work that is of book length.
