Fairfax County Public Library supports its creative community through programming, physical or virtual meeting spaces, and our Local Author Program. In partnership with Library Journal and Biblioboard, we are proud to facilitate submissions to the annual Virginia Author Project Contest in further support of our writers.
This project accepts submissions of adult and young adult fiction to be recognized as the top indie-published eBooks in Virginia. Submissions are accepted from April 1 through May 31.
Please help us promote this contest by sharing this information with any writers or writers groups that you know.
The winners of the contest will receive:
$500 each in adult and young adult categories
Honors at the 2021 Indie Author Day Reception
Opportunities to promote their book(s) at Virginia public libraries
Inclusion in a full-page print spread in Library Journal
Opportunities to earn royalties through the IAP Select collection
