Brief Essays on Genre, Part 8: On Literary Awards



On Literary Awards


The purpose of most literary awards is to convince authors whose work is beloved by their fans to keep writing even though their books may not earn enough money for them to quit their day jobs.


Many best-selling writers are never nominated for those awards and resent that fact. They are, however, missing the point.
