Attention, Wyoming Writers!

Entry forms are now available for the 2007 Neltje Blanchan Memorial Award, a $1,000 prize recognizing a Wyoming writer whose work, in any genre, is inspired by nature, and for the 2007 Frank Nelson Doubleday Award, a $1,000 prize that honors a Wyoming woman writer “of exceptional talent in any creative genre.” These prizes are administered by the Wyoming Arts Council, and you can find out more about them here. (No entry fees; deadline: August 8, 2006).

I learned about these awards from a great resource for writers in Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain West, Wyolitmail, a weekly newsletter you can also look into at the above Web site.
