I received this announcement from prolific author K’Anne Meinel, who is the owner of Shadoe Publishing and very active in the lesfic community. Together with some colleagues, she has started a new annual award for lesbian literature, and they’re looking for judges. (To avoid conflict of interest, K’Anne will not be judging entries or submitting her books to the awards.)
The judging process is “blind,” meaning the judges will not know the names of authors or titles of any books they judge.
Do you think you’d make a good judge? Read on to learn more.
Minneapolis, MN – The Lesfic Bard Awards has issued its Proclamation for Judges for the 2018 awards season. These awards are presented each year to recognize excellence in lesbian literature, also known as Lesfic.
The judging process will open January 1, 2018 and run through to December 31, 2018. The awards administrators will review, consult, and select the judges. Those selected will be notified via email.
Consideration will be given to all interested parties in a fair, equitable, and professional manner, but experienced judges will have priority. We have sixteen (16) categories spanning a vast array of lesbian literature, so there is something to pique many interests. Each category will be assigned up to five (5) judges. Judges may apply for more than one category but must be able to maintain their responsibilities in a fair and prompt manner for each category they choose.
Judges must complete and sign the Application of Interest form and must be accepted by our awards administrators before they begin judging. Judges must submit their scoring for all books in their category no later than February 15, 2019.
