Receiving a literary award is a dream of many authors, a sign that they’ve “made it” right up there with becoming a best seller.

In the literary world, there are thousands of different prizes awarded to aspiring and established authors each year. Literacy Nation now offer literary awards to indie authors.

We encourage authors to submit their work, as our awards will inspire authors everywhere to keep reaching for the stars.

Awards and submission dates will be announced in the fall of 2022.
