Great Librarian Write-Out 2016

Contribute to the Great Librarian Write-Out and increase the award!

Goal: $2,500.00

 Here is where you can make a donation to increase the prize money for the Great Librarian Write-Out!

EveryLibrary is excited to announce to the 4th round of the Great Library Write-Out. This near yearly competition encourages librarians to get out of the echo-chamber and put their writing skills to good use in non-library publications for a chance to win a $250 cash prize. If you’re familiar with previous year’s write-outs (2015, 2013, 2012), you’ll notice that we’ll have a couple of changes in this round. While previous years were seed funded with a $250 contribution by PC Sweeney this year it will be entirely an EveryLibrary sponsored competition and we are encouraging others to donate specifically to increase the prize award through this site. Once again we will allow submissions to online sources and anyone who adds $100 to the award will get to vote on the articles that were submitted. The judging will be based on the popularity of the print/web publication, the quality of the article and writing, the depth of the information, and how well it addresses the question: “Why are libraries so important?” It will be judged by the board members of EveryLibrary and anyone who contributes $100 to the prize at ALA Midwinter 2017. You have a year to write, but don't wait! The more articles that we get out, the better!
