We are pleased to announce the semi-finalists for the first Awst Press Book Prize! We are infinitely grateful to all of the authors who participated. We received many wonderful entries from around the world and we were thrilled with the caliber and diversity of the work submitted. It has been a summer filled with magic, grit, heartache, wisdom, and wow.
We will be making finalist selections shortly and will send three manuscripts to our contest judge, T Kira Madden, to select our winners. Stay tuned for additional updates.
