MAIN Arrow to ArtArt & Culture Arrow to LiteratureLiterature Arrow to Literature AwardsAwards

One sure way to gain outstanding recognition in the literary world is to win an award.

A prestigious award is best, but any win in a competition means that someone besides the writer thinks the words being produced are worth reading... and may be just the introduction or spotlight that a struggling writer needs to get that manuscript past the discard pile.

The benefit to the literary world, besides calling attention to talented newcomers, is that outstanding work gets either introduced to the public or promoted that much more easily.

For book consumers, finding a list of award winners from a respected organization can help out with buying gifts for kids and teens. Getting advice for bedside or summer vacation reading is a cinch if readers can spot an award winning book that becomes a " must-read" that can be enthusiastically discussed with friends.

For professional writers and their agents, as well as budding writers with dreams of sucess, these top resources up ahead lead to more specific information on literary awards, prizes and related info around the WWW ....
