DANA AWARDS 2016
(posted 4/4/17)
We want to thank our winners and finalists, 
and all ur entrants this year, for the great 
pleasure of reading your work.
* ON A NOTE OF GREAT REGRET: After 21 
consecutive years of offering the Dana Awards, 
we have to suspend the Awards for next year, 
for  reasons financial, technical, and medical. 
For financial and technical reasons, we can not 
offer online entry and payment, as most writers 
now expect, and thus are suffering declining 
number of entries. Furthermore, I shattered an 
ankle in a fall February 17 and have been 
wheelchair-confined, with surgeries and rehab 
stays, since. For the near future, I have to conserve 
my energies for recovery and for focusing on my 
own writing. 
It's been a good run of 21 years, and I hate to 
halt now, but must. I will resume the Awards 
if/when I can.
Best,
Mary Elizabeth Parker
Chair, Dana Awards

 

A NOTE FROM MARY ELIZABETH PARKER

I began the Dana Awards in 1996, named after 

my husband, Michael Dana (financial backer as 

needed), as a way to recognize and reward 

excellent fiction and poetry.


Michael is a supporter of good literature

but not a writer (except of incisive business

reports and letters to the editor).

 

     ON A PERSONAL NOTE:

We'd love to see your 

work.

Best,

Mary Elizabeth Parker
