Judith A. Markowitz Award for Emerging LGBTQ Writers

The Judith A. Markowitz Award honors two LGBTQ-identified, emerging writers whose work demonstrates their strong potential for promising careers.

Each award comes with a cash prize of $1,000.

By emerging writer, we mean those who have published at least one, but no more than two, books of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. Last year’s winners were Jeanne Thornton and Mecca Jamilah Sullivan.

Applicants to this prize may be self-nominated or nominated by another member of the community. Please read the guidelines thoroughly and submit here!
