Okay gang, I know that with all the talented and clever writers in our midst, there are plenty who have earned one or more of the awards listed here. Unfortunately, folks seem a little shy about applying for them. Or perhaps they don't realize they qualify.
So, when you're out there reading, if you enjoy a fic that you feel deserves the Cliche Buster award, or notice that a writer has stories that qualify for the Star Trek Writer or Shippy Fanfic Writer awards, encourage them to apply. Or if you're too shy to encourage them directly, let me know so I can do so.
