Three prizes are given annually to a poet, a fiction writer, and a creative nonfiction writer to honor their first published books. The winners are also invited to visit several of the 13 GLCA colleges, where they will give readings, meet with students, and occasionally lead discussions and classes; travel expenses and an honorarium of at least $500 is provided for each visit. Faculty members of the GLCA colleges will judge. Publishers may submit four copies of a book published between Spring 2015 and Spring 2016 by July 25; each submission is limited to one title per category. There is no entry fee. Send an SASE, e-mail, or visit the website for complete guidelines.
