Time to nominate writers for the Paula Wilshe Award
We started the memorial Paula Wilshe Award for New Writers in Starsky & Hutch in 2003 to honor our friend. Paula was a shining light in Starsky & Hutch fandom who loved to work with and encourage new writers. You can find out more about this wonderful woman on her fanlore page. This award is just one small way of remembering her while celebrating writers in a way she would have enjoyed.
We encourage you to nominate any new writer who first published any kind of S&H fanfic in a zine or on the Internet between September 2009 and September 2014. Not sure if your favorite writer is eligible within the time span -- ask her! Writers can nominate themselves. A writer can only win the Paula Wilshe Award once.
Send nominations to the award committee (Keri, Cyanne, and Flamingo) at
pwaward at sharecon dot net
with Paula Wilshe Nominations in the subject line. Please list author, author's email address, and, if available, an URL where we can find their writing. Nominate as many authors as you like! Writers can also nominate themselves.
We'll acknowledge nominations or any questions you may have by email. If you don't hear back within a few days, please send your note again.
Nominations will close on September 16.
We will announce the finalists and details on the last round of voting soon after that. Thanks in advance for your participation in this very special award.
