CLRI Literary Awards Nomination 2017

CLRI Literary Awards Nomination 2017

Dear authors,

We have initiated nomination process to various literary awards and prizes. CLRI will nominate authors published with us during the past year (CLRI February 2016, CLRI May 2016, CLRI August 2016, CLRI November 2016). However before we select the few best stories we seek help from our authors. They need to distribute their stories among their readers and get them read and send us their rating.

How to create readership for your stories?

Reading Cycle January 1, 2017 – January 30, 2017

Authors need their stories distribute among their own circle and get them read by their readers. Ask the readers to give a rating out of 5.

Do not post your stories on blogs, social networking sites, or other places.

Post link to your stories from CLRI on blogs, social networking sites, or other places. Example: For the story titled And Confessions Created Confusions by Veerinder Patwari, share or post the link among your friends. Our journal system is capable to track how many people accessed the article and the CLRI team will gather rating manually from such social networking sites.

Genre: Stories only

Example:  Rate the literary pieces around the following parameters.  
1 to 5 (1 hackneyed > 5 original writing)
Normal to high
1 to 5 (1 mere word play > 5 highly symbolic)
Follows story telling formats
1 to 5 (1 does not follow > 5 follows strictly)
Language Usage
Simple to standard
1 to 5 (1 fine language > 5 very high standard language)
Over All
Reaction at first reading/ If you would recommend this piece to others
1 to 5 (1 liked at first read > like to read again and again)

CLRI Editors

Reading Cycle February 1, 2017 – February 28, 2017

CLRI Editors will read the stories and go through the ratings received by the authors. They will shortlist some of the best stories.

Chief Editor

Reading Cycle March 1, 2017 – March 30, 2017

Senior Editors will finalize the best 2-3 pieces and send to different literary awards.
Timeline: We will follow strict timeline. There can be no change in schedule.
Reading Fee: None. The cost for all the editing process will be borne by CLRI.
Awarding Entities: They are known names and there is no fee to participate to those awards.
