Yes, it’s back! Last year’s 10 Weird Writers to Save Us All in 2018 was an absolute success, and many of the featured writers ended up in our debut anthology, Mannequin: Tales of Wood Made Flesh. We’re hoping even more readers and fellow writers turn out this year to nominate their deserving peers. One of the things were passionate about here on SMM is promoting writers who might not be getting the recognition they deserve. It’s a tough world for writers out there, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of online information oversaturation. So, here’s your chance, folks. There are only a few rules:
Nominate a weird, bizarro, horror, or otherwise experimental writer you feel could use some recongition this year for their tireless work. Try to avoid nominating folks who already have a strong online presence and fanbase; the point of this list is to express gratitude to authors who might not recieve it otherwise.
Nominations are open to the public! Ten nominees will be voted by the Silent Motorist Media street team for public recognition. Please limit your nominations to four or fewer writers. It’s always helpful to include a few words on why you think these writers deserve recognition. We consider such comments when it comes to the final vote.
Please try to nominate a writer who has released or is planning to release something in 2019! While this is our preference, it isn’t strictly necessary.
Please do not nominate yourself!
You may submit your nominations as a comment to this post, or as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be announced early in June, and nominations will close on May 30th.
Let the nominations again! Your participation is deeply appreciated, and we encourage you to share this announcement on social media. The more shares this gets, the more exposure your deserving author will get when the list releases!
