Christian Writers Guild Awards are the best in the world, according to the Writers Guild of America, and that’s a big deal.
The award is presented annually by the Writers’ Digest, and is named after the literary group founded by Thomas Pynchon in 1962.
The awards, which also honor writers in their fields of choice, are presented on a rotating basis, but this year marks the first time they’ll be presented to a writer from outside the industry.
The Writers Guild’s website explains that the ceremony, which is held at The New York Hilton, will feature readings by some of the best writers in the business, including Stephen King, Paul Auster, Brian Aldiss, Margaret Atwood, Charles Burns, J.D. Salinger, and more.
The first reading is on Saturday, May 17, and will air on ABC.

Rock will read a selection from his upcoming film, The Book Thief, and he’ll then answer questions from the audience.

The annual poetry slam is a series of poems by writers that will be read by the judges, but the judges will be the ones who decide which poets will be featured.
The judges are a panel of five writers from the literary world, including Pynn, Aldiss and others.
Rock, a fellow writer of the Slam, has been nominated for two Slam awards: the first for the 2012 Poetry slam and the second for 2015.
The first reading of the Poetry slams will be on Saturday at The Hilton, and Rock will answer questions at the panel discussion.
Rock is also a member of the Writers Society of America’s Editorial Board, and the Writers Alliance, which represents some of his fellow writers.
The organization has also nominated him for the Slam award.
Rock will also answer questions during the reading, and while the judging panel is composed of a handful of writers, the panel will also feature several writers from outside of the industry, including some of Pynk’s collaborators, Pauline Kael, Robert Kirkman and others, and others from outside Hollywood.
Rock also recently won the Writers Choice Award for his work on the hit FX series Game of Thrones, and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his portrayal of the character, Tyrion Lannister.
Rock is also nominated for his performances on The West Wing and Veep, and his work in the feature film The Fountain.
Rock has also appeared in the short film Love in the Time of Cholera and has written for films like The Hangover Part III, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Martian.
Rock was nominated last year for the Writers Slam for his performance as an actor on HBO’s Westworld, which has earned him multiple accolades from critics.
Rock starred in the documentary film The Artist in Black, which was nominated in the category of Short Film.
Rock’s previous performances have also been nominated in several categories, including Best Actor for the HBO series, The Big Short, for his role as Steve Buscemi in the film and for his supporting performance in the HBO hit drama, Veep.
