New Writers Award

The New Writers Award is sponsored by the thirteen members of the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) to recognize newly published writers and introduce the best among them to students and faculty on GLCA campuses. Judges are professors of literature and writers in residence at GLCA colleges.

Since 1970, an award is made each year for a first published volume of poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. Each award winner has the opportunity to tour the thirteen colleges giving readings, meeting students and faculty, and leading discussions or classes.

Nominations should come from the publisher and should emphasize literary excellence. Please consult the guidelines for the 2016 New Writers Award in the link below.  Publishers interested in finding out more about this award can contact Gregory Wegner, Director of the New Writers Award, via email or at 734.661.2350.
