SFWP 2017 Literary Awards Program: The Short List

Here we go! The short list for the 2017 Literary Awards Program! The Long List is right here.

What an amazing selection of manuscripts we received this year. The closer we get to the final three winners, the harder it is to select which manuscripts move on through the process. This is a tough competition this year, so we may see an even shorter list of 10-15 finalists before we announce the winners. Expect that sometime in October. We should still be on track with my original timeline.

So, enough from me. Let’s get to the list. In no particular order:
