ABOUT THE PRIDE AWARD
The Pride Award is an annual grant of $2,000 for an emerging writer in the LGBTQIA+ community. Here's what is required for submission:
- An unpublished work of crime fiction, aimed at readers from children’s chapter books through adults. This may be a short story or first chapter(s) of a manuscript in-progress of 2,500 to 5,000 words.
- A resume or biographical statement.
- A cover letter that gives a sense of the applicant as an emerging writer in the genre and briefly states how the award money would be used. (How the money might be used is not a deciding factor in the judges’ decision.)
An unpublished writer is preferred, however publication of not more than ten pieces of short fiction and/or up to two self-published or traditionally published books will not disqualify an applicant. While no prior writing or publishing experience is required, the applicant should include any relevant studies or experience in their materials.
