Now, it’s on to year two! The Hall of Fame committee has decided again to induct only writers who are deceased. We will accept nominations (up to five per person) from now until Oct. 10. This is not a vote. Your nominations will be considered by a Hall of Fame committee chaired by Kentucky Arts Council director Lori Meadows. Final decisions will be announced at an induction ceremony in January 2014.
 
For a writer to be eligible for the Hall of Fame, he/she must:
1) no longer be living,
2) be someone whose writing is of enduring stature, and
3) be connected in a significant way to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
 
The Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame was created by the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in Lexington. It is our goal to recognize Kentucky writers whose work reflects the character and culture of our Commonwealth, and to educate Kentuckians about our state’s rich literary heritage.
 
Please send in your nominations by Oct. 10, and feel free to forward this message to anyone you think might want to nominate.
