nominate a writer for aaww's asian american lifetime achievement award

The Asian American Writers' Workshop, the nation's preeminent literary arts organization dedicated to excellent Asian American writing, is asking for the community's help in submitting nominations for consideration to the prestigious Asian American Lifetime Achievement Award, honoring a literary figure who has made a substantial contribution to Asian American or literary culture. Here are some more details describing who they're looking for:
The ideal award-winner will be a literary figure of any genre who has built a substantial body of work, indicative of high literary and intellectual merit, or someone who has made a substantial contribution to Asian American or literary culture. Past winners of this award include Maxine Hong Kingston, David Henry Hwang, Hisaye Yamamoto, and Sonny Mehta. To be eligible for the award, writers or cultural figures must be of Asian American descent and must be living. To submit your nominations, please complete the form below by Friday, July 22, 2011 at 6PM EST. A committee of judges will then decide on the recipient of this year's award. We thank you for your assistance in honoring writers and cultural figures who have spent their lifetimes making significant contributions to Asian American literature!
Nominations are due this Friday, so think of somebody super literary and submit your nominations (up to three) using the form here. And for submitting, you'll be entered into a raffle to win a copy of Margaret Dilloway's How To Be An American Housewife or Jean Kwok's Girl in Translation.
