So why not get one?
Did you have a poem, memoir, or short story published in 2020? How about an article, website, blog, or photograph? If so, you’re probably eligible for an award with the National Federation of Press Women (NFPW). It does not matter if you identify as female or not. All are eligible.
DPP is a member of, and has had great success with, NFPW, and so have our authors. It helps your writing and your applications for grants/retreats/etc. to have these on your resume.
