The 2014 Great Northwest Book Festival has issued a call for entries to its annual competition honoring the best books of the late winter/spring season.

The Great Northwest Book Festival will consider published and unpublished works in fiction, non-fiction, biography/autobiography, how-to, compilations/anthologies, photography/art, children’s, cookbooks, poetry, spiritual, young adult, business/technology, unpublished manuscripts, wild card (anything goes!) and nature/animals. There is no date of publication restriction, but all entries must be in English.

Our grand prize for the 2014 Great Northwest Book Festival winner includes an appearance fee and a flight to our awards ceremony, to be held in March, 2014.

Submitted works will be judged by a panel using the following criteria:

1) General excellence and the author's passion for telling a good story.
2) The potential of the work to reach a wider audience.
