It's time that self-published authors earn the respect they deserve: All that time you spent writing and rewriting, editing, and making your own choices about covers, layout, and distribution shouldn't go unnoticed!
That's why Writer's Digest has been honoring self-publishing writers for 28 years with the Self-Published Book Awards.
Here's the scoop: Submit your self-published, printed and bound book in one of 8 categories (mainstream/literary fiction, genre fiction, nonfiction/reference, inspirational, life stories, early reader/children's picture books, middle-grade/young adult, poetry) for a chance at:
$8,000 cash prize
A trip to New York City for the Annual Writer's Digest Conference
A feature article about you and your book in the March/April 2021 issue of Writer's Digest
Every entrant will also receive a brief commentary from one of our qualified judges—all who have experience in their respective categories and/or the publishing world.
Ready to earn the recognition you deserve? Send us your book, which must have been published between 2015 and now, and we'll take care of the rest. You'll be well on your way!
