Please submit either an original or clear paper copy of each story, including publication name, author and date the story appeared, to:

Glenn Stout P.O. Box 549
Alburgh, VT 05440

Writers, readers, and all other interested parties should feel free to alert me to either your own work or that of someone else for consideration in The Best American Sports Writing 2011 according to the following criteria:

Each story
  • -Must be column length or longer.
  • -Must have been published in 2010.
  • -Must not be a re-print or book excerpt.
  • -Must be published in the United States or Canada.
  • -Must be received by February 1, 2011.

All submissions must include the name of the author, date of publication, publication name and address. Photocopies, tear-sheets or clean copies are fine. Readable reductions to 8 ½ x 11 are preferred. Submissions from on-line publications must be made in hard copy, and those who submit stories from newspapers should submit the story in hard copy as published. Since newsprint generally suffers in transit, newspaper stories are best copied and then mounted on 8 ½ x 11 paper, and, if the story also appeared on-line, with the appropriate URL attached. While there is no limit to the number of submissions either an individual or a publication may make, but please use common sense. Due to the volume of material I receive, no submission can be returned or acknowledged, and it is inappropriate for me to comment on or critique any individual submission. Publications that want to be absolutely certain their contributions are considered are advised to provide a complimentary subscription to the address listed below. Those that already do so should make sure to extend the subscription.

No electronic submissions will be accepted, although stories that only appeared on-line are eligible. Please send all submissions by U.S. Mail – weather conditions in mid-winter here at BASW headquarters mean I often cannot receive UPS or Fed Ex submissions – and the deadline, February 1, is real.

Those with questions or comments may contact me at Copies of previous editions of this book can be ordered through most bookstores or on-line book dealers. An index of stories that have appeared in this series can be found at my website, For updated information readers and writers are also encouraged to join The Best American Sports Writing group on Facebook.
