Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group
2009 Literary Awards
at the Riverview Country Club in Easton
On Friday, July 24, 2009, 6:30-10:30 p.m., the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group (GLVWG) will host the 2009 GLVWG Literary Awards at the Riverview Country Club in Easton. The awards program, developed to recognize excellence in published works by its members, is a first-of-its-kind program, both within the organization and in the Lehigh Valley region.
Awards will be given in 6 out of 10 possible categories (see below), including Lifetime Achievement, a distinction given to a published writer who has also served GLVWG and the community. While formal judging determines the winners of the 5 literary categories, GLVWG members select among 5 nominated authors for the Lifetime Achievement award.
The agenda for the GLVWG Literary Awards will include cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a sit-down dinner with dessert, opening comments from Randall Forte, executive director of the Lehigh Valley Arts Council, awards presentation, basket raffle of writing-related goodies, and concluding social time. The event is open to the public for $36 per person. Reserve your spot by visiting www.glvwg.org/awards.htm. No refunds after July 15, 2009.
