Sarasvati Awards for Best Books in Women and Mythology
The Association for Study of Women and Mythology announces the first biennial competition for the Sarasvati Awards for Best Books in Women and Mythology. Two awards will be given at the ASWM national conference in San Francisco in May, one for nonfiction/scholarly work, one for creative work in poetry, fiction or other genre, for books published during 2010 and 2011.
Books must be published in print, not only in e-book format. Nominations must come directly from publisher; authors should contact their publishers to ask them to nominate for this award. Each publisher may nominate one work in each category, although publishers may nominate in only one category if they prefer. At this point, anthologies do not qualify for this award. Publishers should contact ASWM at SarasvatiAwards@gmail.com to receive required submissions form and details of submissions process.
Judges will be a panel of published writers in women and mythology. Their own work cannot be accepted for consideration for these awards.
Awardees will be invited to read at the ASWM national conference during the year of their award and/or the next biannual meeting following.
