Firecrackers are not just for the Fourth!!!

The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses [clmp] just announced that the The Firecracker Awards for Independently and Self-Published Literature are back and [clmp] is accepting submissions now through Sept 1st.

Check out this feature in Publishers Weekly for more information about the award's legacy.
All independent publishers and self-published authors of literature are encouraged to submit to the Firecracker Awards. CLMP is accepting submissions in five categories: fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, young adult, and graphic novel. All submissions will be read by at least two readers. Winning titles will be highlighted in a national marketing campaign that features prominent placement in indie bookstores from coast to coast, and will receive significant digital marketing with the Firecracker Award Winning Book logo. Submission fees will be used to generate marketing materials for winning titles and to raise necessary funds for CLMP.

For more details about the judging process and how to submit, please visit [clmp]’s Submittable page.
