Lyrical Space has been nominated for the 2012 Georgia Author of the Year award in the Poetry category.

The Georgia Author of the Year Awards (GAYA) have the distinction of being the oldest literary awards in the Southeastern United States while reflecting the current publishing world. The Awards have grown in prestige and participation since its inception in 1964 by the Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists. The GAYA changed hands in 1990 to Georgia Writers Association and in 2006 GWA began a strong affiliation with Kennesaw State University’s Department of Humanities.
