NOMINATE A KENTUCKY WRITER

The Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning is now accepting nominations for the Kentucky Great Writers Series, which runs on a fiscal year calendar. The series features 12 writers who either live in Kentucky now or have lived here in the past and have one or more works of high literary quality. Self-nominations are accepted. Writers are selected based on literary quality, not on the number of nominations received. Incomplete nominations will not be considered. Submit your nomination using the online form below. Each year, the nomination deadline is the last day of February for the series that begins in the fall of that same year.

We hope to see you soon at the Carnegie Center, home to writers, lifelong learners, & the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame.
