Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
Outskirts Press, a self-publishing and book marketing service provider based out of Colorado, today announced it will sponsor the 2015 Colorado Book Awards. The annual awards, run by Colorado Humanities and Center for the Book, recognize outstanding contributions by Colorado authors, editors, illustrators and photographers in multiple categories.
Founded in 1991, the Colorado Book Awards has grown from four literary categories to the current ten, including anthology/collection, biography, children’s, creative non-fiction, fiction, history, pictorial, poetry and young adult. Over the years, some of Colorado’s most impressive and talented authors, including John Fielder, Linda Hogan, Tom Noel, Stephanie Kane and David Milofsky, have been recognized with awards.
“As a service provider to independent authors, it means a lot to us to be able to give back to the Colorado literary community that has so enriched our lives through their work,” said Outskirts Press Executive Vice President Kelly Schuknecht. “It is an honor for us to be able to contribute to the recognition of these local artists.”
Applications for the 2014 Colorado Book Awards were collected through January 2, 2015. Colorado Humanities and Center for the Book will announce the Colorado Book Award winners on Sunday, June 21, 2015, during the 24th Annual Colorado Book Awards ceremony at the Aspen Meadows Resort.
