Call for entries: National Authors Day

Authors Guild of Tennessee (AGT) will commemorate National Authors Day with “Celebrate Our Authors” on Friday, Nov. 1, 2019.

CALL for ENTRIES to apply to be a “featured author” is open to all published authors living in east Tennessee with a book published within the last four years. Featured Authors will be selected by a panel of book sellers and literary professionals to do a 30-minute presentation of their book, which will include a Q&A and book signing. All presentations will be in downtown Knoxville. Application Deadline: August 30. No entry fee.

Information and applications are available online at

This one-day event has been celebrating authors and the books they write since 1949, when the United States Department of Commerce officially recognized November 1 as National Authors Day. Presented for the first time in Knoxville by the Authors Guild of Tennessee, the day will recognize and honor local authors and raise awareness to our rich literary community. The Knoxville Writers’ Guild and Union Ave Books will join AGT in hosting author presentations throughout the day – most of which will take place at Union Ave Books.

The Authors Guild of Tennessee believes the reading experience is greatly enhanced by getting to know authors personally – discovering first-hand details about their books and often finding inspiration through this unique interaction.
