Three prizes are given annually to a poet, a fiction writer, and a creative nonfiction writer to honor their first books. The winners each receive an all-expenses-paid trip to several of the 13 GLCA colleges, each of which pays an honorarium of at least $500, to give readings, meet with students, and lead discussions and classes. Books published in 2018 and 2019 are eligible. Faculty members of the colleges will judge. Publishers may submit four copies of one book in each category by June 25. There is no entry fee.
