2019 Evaluation Instruments

Below are PDF versions of the Evaluation Instruments for the 2019 Awards. Specific enhancements made for the 2019 judged awards include:

  • Judges will rate all nominees on a 1-to-10 point scale rather than the 1-to-5 point scale usd previously. Statements are intended to capture the essential elements of award-winning novels, anthologies, short stories, poetry collections, or works of nonfiction, as well as essential elements of award-winning books in genre-specific categories.
  • To reflect growing diversity, all GOLDIE categories include this in proposed judging guidelines:
    • These books must include significant themes, characters, situations, and/or other lesbian-oriented content—i.e., literary works about women who love women.
  • By eliminating and restructuring items, the number of closed-ended questions has been reduced significantly, typically by one-third to one-half. Open-ended questions have been reduced from eleven to two.
  • GOLDIE entries must adhere to these length requirements:
    • Anthologies/collections – a minimum of three individual pieces totaling at least 40,000 words.
    • Novels – a minimum of 40,000 words.
    • Nonfiction books – a minimum of 40,000 words.
    • Poetry – submissions must be at least 48 pages long, and at least 50 percent “new” poems.
