PAUL SMITHS - In 2006, the Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW) established the Adirondack Literary Awards, a juried awards program that honors books published in or about the Adirondacks in the previous year. This year's deadline is March 8, 2010.
Those wishing to submit a book published in 2009 to be considered for an award should send two copies of the book to Director Nathalie Thill at the ACW office with a brief cover letter including author's contact information and description of the book's "qualifications." Is the author from the Adirondack region, or is the book about or influenced by the Adirondacks in some way?
The cover letter should also name which category the author would like the book to be judged under: fiction, poetry, children's literature, memoir, nonfiction, or photography. There is no entry fee. Do not include a SASE; books cannot be returned but will become part of reading rooms or libraries.
The mailing address is Adirondack Center for Writing, Paul Smith's College, PO Box 265, Paul Smiths, New York 12970. Questions may be directed to Nathalie Thill at ACW at 327-6278 or email@example.com.
