Our awards competition is open

In 1957, the Society of Midland Authors created annual awards for the best books by Midwestern writers. Ever since then, it has been the Society’s great honor to recognize this region’s literary excellence.

Our competition is now open for books published in 2013. The winners will receive recognition plaques and $500 each at an awards banquet on May 13, 2014, in Chicago.

To find out how to enter, please read the contest rules on our website, which also includes a list of the contest judges and a printable entry form.

The deadline to submit a book for consideration is Feb. 1.
