Woo! And the website is back!
As has become tradition at this time of year, I’m gathering all the award eligibility and recommended reading posts I can find and linking them here as a central repository for folks to refer to when considering what to nominate for various awards this year. It’s also a great way to find new work you may have missed, because there’s so much fabulous stuff out there it’s impossible to keep up.
At some point, I’ll be putting together my own eligibility and recommendation posts. In the meantime, I’ll be updating this post as often as I can.
For example, at the moment, I’m editing to add a link to this excellent article by Lyndsie Manusos that talks about the award nomination process, eligibility posts, and year-end lists in general. It’s a helpful explainer on what eligibility posts are and why they’re important, as well as some helpful examples and other info for authors, editors, and publishers.
Please feel free to email me at a.c.wise [at] hotmail.com with your own links, or find me on Twitter (for now) as @ac_wise and on Mastodon as email@example.com and share your links there, and I will add them to the post.
The categories should be pretty self explanatory. The first section contains general information about awards, the second is author/editor/publisher eligibility posts, and the last section is recommended reading links. Happy reading!
