Maida Tilchen's News

I'm very pleased to announce that "Land Beyond Maps has won the Arizona Book Publishing Association Award in the Gay/Lesbian category. It was also a Finalist in the Multicultural category. The website is http://azbookpub.com/onews/aba-2010-winners/

"Land Beyond Maps is a Finalist for two more awards:
- Lambda Literary Foundation "Lammy" in the Lesbian Debut category, which will be announced May 27.
- Golden Crown Literary Society in the "Dramatic General Fiction" category, which will be announced June 5.

Also, with the confidence of all these awards, I am going to try to fulfill a lifelong dream by applying for residencies at the MacDowell and Yaddo colonies. The applications require reference letters from people with high credibility in literature or writing or with generally high professional standing, and who also know me or would be willing to get to know me well enough to attest that I would be "temperamentally suitable" to stay at a writer's residency. If you feel you are appropriate and would be willing to write the reference, or if you can suggest someone, please let me know.
