The Publishing Triangle is proud to honor the best and brightest writers working today. Other people, as well as institutions, contribute to the health, vibrancy, and prestige of LBGTQ literature. In that light, the Publishing Triangle’s Leadership Award recognizes the many contributions of editors, literary agents, and others, including institutions and periodicals, who have worked tirelessly to see that great books reach avid readers.
