So the thing I’ve been helping with worked out: the Emerging Indigenous Voices Awards are a real thing. Not only is the Indigenous Literary Studies Association (ILSA) overseeing them, but they have a jury ready for the first iteration. Almost $100,000 have been raised for the awards at this point but ILSA has a goal of $150,000 to make the awards sustainable. Pitch in if you can! It’s for a good cause.
