Writers Invited to Enter Mind Body Spirit Awards
Writers working in the mind, body and spirit genre have just six days to go to enter their published work to the 2015 Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust Book Awards.
The Award, now in its 12th year carries a $10,000 prize.
Entries close on 31 May 2015.
Entries in the Unpublished Manuscript category closed on 31 March. This category also carries a prize of $10,000.
Spokesperson for The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust, Adonia Wylie says the judging panel is looking for fiction or non-fiction works that have the potential to uplift and enhance people, relationships and society.
“We enjoy reading works that extend our knowledge of the genre and we would like to encourage all writers interested in the growing mind, body, spirit field to submit their work.
“Authorship and editing are important considerations, and in the case of published books, quality of production such as design and typography will also be important.”
Last year, Lloyd Geering won the $10,000 award in the Published Book category for his work:From the Big Bang to God.
The awards are unique in the country for their encouragement of writing in the mind, body, spirit field.
“The genre encompasses a wide range of beliefs and has higher consciousness, expanded awareness and greater enlightenment as its goals.
“Works from secular and religious backgrounds such as mysticism, spirituality, religion, alternative healing, metaphysics, quantum physics, meditation, holistic personal development, and theosophy are of interest to us,” says Ms Wylie.
Shortlisted writers will be announced mid-July and the award winners will be announced at a ceremony at The Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust’s own venue, Hopetoun Alpha in Auckland on 14 August, 2015.
