The Firecracker Awards for Independently and Self-Published Literature are a revitalized iteration of the Firecracker Alternative Book Award, originally established in 1996.

The Community of Literary Magazines and Presses has once again joined forces with the American Booksellers Association to present the annual Firecracker Awards, devoted to celebrating independent literary publishers and self-published works of high literary merit.

“ABA is excited to see the return of the Firecracker Awards, and enthusiastically supports the efforts of the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses to promote the works of independent literary publishers,” said American Booksellers Association Development Officer Mark Nichols.

Submission for the 2017 Awards are open to books published in 2016. Deadline for all submitted titles is December 1, 2016. View full guidelines here.
