Wanna Be America’s Best Book Reviewer?

The National Book Critics Circle is looking for nominees for this year’s Nona Balakian Citation for Excellence in Reviewing, and the best part is that you can totally nominate yourself for this prize. In fact, you’re the only person who can! The catch is that you actually have to be a dues-paying member of the Circle to be eligible, but once you get that out of the way, all you need to do is send your clippings—no more than five reviews, though, with a cap at 5,000 words total—to the Balakian committee.
