Trafford’s Dr. Anne Short has just won the prestigious Eric Hoffer award for her book, CHOICES Seven Steps — Life Lessons 101. We at Trafford are very proud to congratulate Anne on her hard work and on the splendid acclaim that she has received!
About CHOICES Seven Steps
From Anne: “This book was inspired out of the endeavors of CHOICES 7 Steps, a seven weeks moral reasoning conflict resolution therapeutic program. The many years of facilitating CHOICES 7 Steps in schools and private organizations, afforded the opportunity of receiving positive feedback on the impact of the program. Results were; positive change of thoughts, attitudes and behavior that led to different perspective on life. The overwhelming request for a home-base program inspired this home-based self-help handbook to enhance self-awareness.”
About the Award
The Eric Hoffer Award for books and short prose honors the memory of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer by highlighting salient writing, as well as the independent spirit of small publishers. Since its inception, the Eric Hoffer Book Award has become one of the largest international awards for small, academic, and independent presses.
Two grand prizes are awarded annually: one for short prose (i.e. fiction and creative nonfiction) and one for independent books from small, micro, and academic presses, as well as self-published books. Prizes include a $250 for the short prose and a $2,000 book award for best independent book. In addition to the two main grand prize awards, various other honors and distinctions are given for both prose and books, including the Montaigne Medal, the da Vinci Eye, and the First Horizon Award.
For Future Applicants (and Winners)
For those who also see themselves as future recipients of the award, submissions are accepted each year by nominating books and prose. The book deadline is January 21st. The prose deadline is March 31st.
