Celebrate Authors Well Known and Underappreciated with the Colorado Authors’ Hall of Fame

October 8, 2020

For Immediate Release

Denver, CO October 8, 2020 – A group of dedicated authors and publishing providers in Denver, Colorado, the Mile High City, are gearing up for their second Induction of the Colorado Authors' Hall of Fame and are looking for authors to celebrate. And the people who will nominate those authors? They will be the public at large.

Nominations for the Colorado Authors' Hall of Fame have been open since August, and will go on until the end of February, 2021. The induction ceremony itself will be held on September 18 of 2021 at the Renaissance Central Park in Denver, Colorado.

Information about the induction, donations, events, board members and future inductees can all be found at www.ColoradoAuthorsHallofFame.org

The nomination criteria for the Hall of Fame are simple:

  • The author was born in Colorado, currently live in Colorado, or created one of their published works in Colorado.
  • They write about Colorado or include a location or event in Colorado as part of their published work.
  • Made significant and enduring contributions to their fields of work.
  • Helped open new frontiers for writing styles, ideas and concepts.
  • Inspired others by the breadth of their writing and work.
  • Advanced the status of authors.

Only 12 authors will be nominated this year for induction, but any author, whether they were born in Colorado or just passing through, can be nominated. Anyone who wants to make a nomination must go to www.ColoradoAuthorsHallOfFame.org and click on the Nominate tag.

The first Hall of Fame, held in September of last year, was a massive success by everyone that attended. The 22 inductees were honored by science fiction author and fellow inductee Dom Testa, which included the likes of national favorites like the late great Clive Cussler, to local favorites like Ann Parker. The Hall also strived to include authors that brought forth untold stories, like Jill Tietjen who authored the Her Story series of history books that focused on women's voices in hitherto overlooked parts of American history.

Tietjen reminds budding authors, "Be passionate about what you are writing about. 

As much work as writing a book is, that is only a small fraction of the marketing effort required.  Passion about the topic is thus very important!"

The Hall strives to educate the people of Colorado and the country about the stories of the authors who shaped their works using their personal presence and the environment of our State with courage, leadership, intelligence, compassion, and creativity. Inductees are authors who've made a major impact on others with their words. To make sure their legacies never die.
