The National Society of Arts and Letters encourages young talent in art, music and literature.

Arbor Books, the leading ghostwriting, editing and self-publishing firm in the country, is pleased to announce that it has been selected to help judge this year’s National Career Award Competition for Literature, organized by the National Society of Arts and Letters.

The competition will be held in Florida from May 20 to 23.

The competition, which is open to short-story authors between the ages of 18 and 33, is part of NSAL’s long history of promoting the arts in America. The winners of the competition will be announced on May 22 in Clearwater, Florida, where Arbor Books will be represented by Larry Leichman, co-owner of the company.

“We’re honored to be a part of this competition,” says Mr. Leichman. “The NSAL has been promoting the arts for more than sixty years and to be asked to take part in their work is a great privilege. Our company employs dozens of young writers, so we know how important development and support can be for them.”

The top award in the National Career Award Competition is $10,000 and will continue NSAL’s longstanding tradition of patronage. NSAL was started in 1944 by a group of American women who first met in the Maryland home of Mollie Davis Nicholson. The NSAL has always been nonpartisan and nonprofit.

“We’ve been following the work of the NSAL for years,” says Joel Hochman, co-owner of Arbor Books. “Their contribution to the American tradition of literature cannot be overstated. Making a living as a writer can be difficult even in the best of times, but with today’s economy, these competitions are more vital than ever.”

A global company, Arbor Books and its ghostwriters have worked for more than a decade with clients both young and old to produce inspiring memoirs, insightful histories, thrilling novels, business books and many others. The firm works closely with clients to plan their projects at prices that meet their budgets. The process is completely confidential--only the client’s name appears on the finished product, and he or she retains 100 percent of the book’s rights and profits.

Arbor Books ghostwriters have years of experience in writing books with clients from all walks of life, though Mr. Leichman and Mr. Hochman also help young writers to develop.

Arbor Books’ ghostwriters and projects have been published by many of the publishing industry's giants.
