Minnesota Author Project Seeks Judges

MN Writes MN Reads is bringing back the Minnesota Author Project for its fourth year!

As the name suggests, this novel program (pun intended) recognizes the quality work of first-time authors eager to find a wider audience. Only self- or indie-published materials, and only ebooks by Minnesota authors, are eligible for consideration.

Here’s where you come in. MN Writes MN Reads relies on panels of volunteer judges – composed of librarians, Friends, booksellers, teachers, and other bibliophiles – to carefully read and review submitted materials. (It’s no small thing: Winners receive $1,000, a full-page print spread in Library Journal, and inclusion in popular ebook databases!)

Evaluators will begin to receive submission materials after May 31, and have until September to grade. For more information, and to throw your hat into the ring, fill out
