Calling All Colorado Authors! Outskirts Press Wants You for the 2017 Colorado Book Awards

Attention, Colorado-based authors, editors, illustrators and photographers: Outskirts Press is once again sponsoring the annual Colorado Book Awards, and we want your submissions for the 2017 Awards!

The annual event is run by the Colorado Center for the Book, the program department of the Colorado Humanities, which is dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of Colorado’s outstanding authors, editors, illustrators and photographers.


The Colorado Book Awards—presented annually by Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book—were launched in 1991 with four categories of awards to recognize authors, illustrators, editors and publishers, and have since expanded to 10 literary categories. Many of Colorado’s most prominent authors have been recognized with awards, including David Milofsky, John Fielder, Tom Noel, Stephanie Kane and Linda Hogan, among others.

The deadline for applications for the 2017 Colorado Book Awards is January 9, 2017. Judging generally occurs in April, and the awards are presented at a ceremony in Parker in late Spring.
