Lambda Literary is proud to announce the opening of the submissions period for the 27th Annual Lambda Literary Awards (Lammys). Entering their 27th year, the Lammys honor books in more than twenty genres ranging from literary fiction and poetry to speculative fiction, romance and memoir.  “The Lambda Literary Awards celebrate both literary excellence and the enormous role the LGBT literary community has played in informing our identity and advancing our civil rights,” says Lammy Awards Administrator Kathleen DeBold.  “We look forward to receiving this year’s entries from the scholars who document our past, the poets and novelists who illuminate our present and the visionaries who map out our future.”

Books submitted for consideration in this Lammys cycle must be published between January 1 and December 31, 2014 and meet the Lammys Submission Guidelines. Finalists will be announced in March 2015 and Lammy Awards will be presented at the Annual Lambda Literary Awards gala planned for early June of 2015 in New York City.

The Lammys celebrate the best in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender literature and honor groundbreaking work by members of the LGBT literary community.  Since its inception in 1989, Lambda Literary has awarded more than 500 Lammys to outstanding authors including Dorothy Allison, Edmund White, Cherrie Moraga, Leslie Feinberg, Samuel R. Delany, Kate Bornstein, Armistead Maupin and Hilton Als.

The revised guidelines and online submission form are available on the Lambda Literary website. The submission period will close on December 1, 2014.
