Elisa Rolle setting up her own Readers’ Rainbow Awards
In reaction to the business with the Lambda Literary Awards, Elisa Rolle has started the process of setting up a separate award (tentatively christened the Rainbow Award) which will be open to all writers regardless of gender or orientation, and judged by a panel of volunteers from amongst the readers of m/m and other GBTL lit.
She’s still in the process of thrashing out the categories and sub-categories, and deciding whether it’s going to be a Romance/Erotica competition only, or whether it’s going to be for all LBGT lit, including non-romance and non-fiction.
If you think this is a good idea, do head over there and offer her some help!
This is my first stab at a possible structure for the entries. I haven’t filled in anything in some of the columns because I’m too unfamiliar with those genres to know what the sub-sections would be.
