Awards and Benefits?
In 2016 & 2015, we were able to award nearly $30,000 worth of prizes in a variety of ways. The biggest award for any Texas author is the fact that they get a large amount of publicity from being published. No matter if the author has any books published, or plans to, this is a great way to get new readers to learn about them. We do not have the current list of prizes for 2016, but plan to have them posted prior to accepting entries in March.
Winning entries in each category will be combined and published in a digital and hard back copy to be titled “Short Stories by Texas Authors, Vol 3”.
2017 Proposed Award List:
The 1st Place winners will have an opportunity to read their story at the Lone Star Book Festival on October 7 & 8, 2017. Additional book store or event readings may also be scheduled during 2017.
