Three prizes are given annually for first books by a poet, a fiction writer, and a creative nonfiction writer. 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 2022 and 2023 are eligible. Faculty members of the colleges will judge. Publishers may submit four copies of one book in each category postmarked by June 25. There is no entry fee.
