Book Review/Award Submission
  • Cost: $40

  • Three MWSA reviewers will read and score your book (one of whom will write a review).

  • Please note that you must be an MWSA member in good standing in order for us to consider your book for review and award consideration.

  • To ensure that we get the required information, all authors must use our online form to submit their book (black button below)—even if paying by check!

  • Given that MWSA does not have an unlimited number of volunteer reviewers, we can easily get overwhelmed by demand for reviews. For this reason, all authors submitting books during the last 30-45 days of our submission window (May 1 - June 15), must understand that we might not be able to complete our evaluation of your book by the end of the awards season. If this happens, you can, 1) have your book considered in the next year’s award season, or 2) receive a full refund of your submission fee.


After submitting your book details, you'll still need to scroll up to find (and click on) the "shopping cart"--normally located near the top right of the screen.  Your transaction will not complete until filling out and submitting both the book details and payment forms.  You must fill out the payment form even if you'll be mailing in your check separately.

If paying by check:

  • Warning! Paying via check will delay your book submission until your check for $40 is received and credited to our account. Payment must be RECEIVED on or before June 15th to have your book reviewed or considered for award in the current year.

  • Make $40 check payable to "Military Writers Society of America" and mail to MWSA (c/o Hugh Simpson), 1755 N. Collins Blvd., Suite 105, Richardson, TX 75080

  • On checkout leave credit card info blank, but you'll need to re-enter your name and address
