The Vermont Book Award honors artists with deep connections to the state of Vermont, drawing attention to a state so uniquely suited for creative enterprise. In keeping with our mission of promoting emerging and established artists, the Vermont Book Award recognizes outstanding poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and children’s literature penned by either a Vermont writer or a writer with deep ties to the state of Vermont.
