    The deadline for submissions to The Best American Sports Writing 2010 - the 20th edition of the series - is February 1, 2010. Peter Gammons will serve as the guest editor.

    Writers, editors and readers are all welcome – and encouraged - to submit stories for consideration. For full instructions on how to submit, please see below, read the foreword to the 2009 edition, go to glennstout.net or see the BASW facebook page.

    Writers and /or editors of magazines are particularly encouraged to provide a complimentary subscription to the address listed below. Writers for online publications and online editors are reminded that submissions from online publications are encouraged, but submissions must be made in n hard copy – due to the vast number of submissions I receive I cannot accept electronic (i.e. e-mail) submissions.

    Thank you for all your help and please contact me by e-mail (no pm's please) if you have any questions.

    As series editor I encourage everyone to submit any story or stories you think are worthy of inclusion, including those of your friends and colleagues. Writers, readers, and all other interested parties should feel free to alert me to either your own work or that of someone else according to the following criteria:

    Each story

    -Must be column length or longer.
    -Must have been published in 2009.
    -Must not be a reprint or book excerpt.
    -Must be published in the United States or Canada.
    -Must be received by February 1, 2010.

    All submissions must include the name of the author, date of publication, publication name and address. Photocopies, tear-sheets pdf printouts or clean copies are fine. Readable reductions to 8 1/2 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 or pdf 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. 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. I also believe it is inappropriate for me to comment on or critique any individual submission.

    No electronic submissions will be accepted by e-mail, although stories that only appeared on-line are eligible. Please send all submissions by U.S. Mail as weather conditions in midwinter mean I often can't receive UPS or Fed Ex submissions. Please try to hit the deadline. Each year I receive dozens of stories too late to be considered, and dozens more that do not identify the source or author. In the event a story is selected for publication, your publication will be contacted concerning rights and permissions.

    Please send to:

    Many thanks.
