New Montana literature initiative started

The Montana Center for the Book is introducing new literary programs and opportunities including up to five annual literary prizes and a new statewide literary events calendar. The new Montana Center for the Book site features a calendar of literary events taking place across the state. Montana libraries and literary programmers are encouraged to list their events on the page with an easy-to-use online form. The website also features Montana Reads/Montana Writes, a catalog of authors and literature scholars who can be booked for readings, discussions, workshops, and lessons by schools, libraries, and other community groups.
The Montana Center for the Book Prize is a ​new annual cash award to recognize and support organizations that celebrate literature and give people increased access to books and writers. The MCB Prize would include a $1,000 cash award presented to each of up to five organizations that offer creative and wide-reaching literary programming. MCB Prize recipients will be featured on the Montana Center for the Book web page and all recipient organization events will be shared on the MCB calendar of events.
In awarding the MCB Prize, the Montana Center for the Book will prioritize geographic diversity with a special emphasis on organizations that reach rural populations.
