All entry fees go toward designing and creation of collectible trophies and certificates for the winners.

These will be custom made by local specialists, using the budget allowed for by total entries.

Each judge picks one winning entry from their assigned category. Total awards will match total judges.

In addition, Sheralyn (your host) will create a commemorative item combining Kathryn Kay’s recently discovered work with selections from each entry and winning entries, in their entirety. This will not be a prize, but an item that will be made available for optional purchase — following in the tradition of publishing excellent contributions in collectible volumes (see letter below).

Sheralyn will be putting her own modern spin on this practice, focused on encouraging future writing.
