A letter typically includes a description of the project, author’s additional publications or research interests, the press’s publication list, the need for financial support, and other information that might be helpful to the jury in assessing the project. If the publisher or translator is invited to make a full application, they then gather all materials listed in the checklists, below, and send each item as a separate email attachment to Betty Leigh Hutcheson (receipt provided).

All application components, excluding the sample manuscript, must be submitted in English.

CAA will contact the applicant with an invitation to submit a formal application if the project is deemed eligible for an award. The deadline to submit completed applications is December 15, 2017.
