DISQUIET is a project of US-based Dzanc Books and the Portuguese Centro Nacional de Cultura with support from the Luso-American Development Foundation and many other organizations that make it possible for DISQUIET to offer, if we don’t say so ourselves, an incomparably immersive experience in literary and cultural Lisbon.
Winners in each genre will be published: fiction on Granta.com, poetry in The Common, and nonfiction on Nintheletter.com. One grand prize winner will receive tuition, lodging, and a travel stipend to attend the 9th annual Disquiet Literary Program in Lisbon: June 23-July 5, 2019. DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 19, 2019!
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
