An announcement from the New Hampshire Writers' Project:
The New Hampshire Writers' Project has decided to reschedule the New Hampshire Literary Awards for various reasons including an effort to avoid conflict with the Governor's Arts Awards which were scheduled the same week at the same venue. The awards will now take place in association with Writers' Day on March 22, 2014. We believe this will offer the ceremony a bigger audience, more attention from the press and our partners, and an opportunity for greater book sales for all the nominees and winners. At this time, we would like to announce the finalists in their respective categories:
