26th Annual Lambda Literary Awards
“I work best after the deadline has passed, when I’m in a panic.” – Tony Kushner
For our authors and publishers: Don’t panic yet, but the December 1st deadline for Lammy submissions is less than a month away. If you want your book to be considered for a Lambda Literary Award, please review the Guidelines here and complete the online submission process TODAY.
The 26th Annual Lambda Literary Awards are open to works published in 2013, so if your book will be published after December 1 but on or before December 31, it is still eligible for Lammy consideration. You just need to complete the initial submission process before the December 1st deadline and send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org for an extension so that you will have time to send your books to our office as soon as they are printed.
If you believe your work has already been submitted for Lammy consideration, it’s still a good idea to go to our online submissions list and make sure that your book is listed and that it has been entered in the correct Lammy category. Sometimes a form is correctly filled out, but for some reason never gets sent. Sometimes an author believes the publisher has submitted the book and the publisher believes the publicist has submitted the book and the publicist… well, you know the rest.
For our readers: We’ve received more than 300 submissions from 170 publishers, but the bulk of the submissions will come in right before the deadline (like, one minute before…). You can help us ensure that every eligible book has the opportunity to be considered for a Lammy by checking out the Lammy submissions list and making sure that your 2013 favorites are all accounted for. If they aren’t, please let the authors know right away so they can submit their books before the December 1st deadline. Or write to us at email@example.com and we will contact the author/publisher.
