From Lydia Ship:
If you’re a lover of Southern wordsmiths and flora alike then don’t miss out on a treat of a lifetime on the evening of Thursday, April 26th when Georgia Perimeter College’s Southern Academy for Literary Arts and Scholarly Research and The Chattahoochee Review host the reception and award ceremony for the 2012 Townsend Prize for Fiction at the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Day Hall.
Created in memory of Jim Townsend, founding editor of Atlanta magazine and mentor to some of the state’s most lauded men and women of letters, the prize is presented biennially to a Georgia writer who is judged to have published the most outstanding book of fiction during the preceding two years.
Registration to the reception and award ceremony is available online in advance only via the following link: https://giving.gpc.edu/townsend.
The deadline for all online registration is April 11, 2012 at 5 p.m.
