Storytellers in Zion spotlights fiction by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If you are a baptized  member and  wish to be identified as LDS, then you are eligible. Your word is  good enough for me.

If the book has multiple authors, and ONE of them is LDS, it is eligible, as well,
Are you LDS? *
Multiple Authors: list authors who are LDS.
The following questions identify that the book itself meets eligibility requirements. I spotlight fiction for middle grade to adult readers. I do not spotlight picture books, short chapter books, memoirs, serialized fiction, individual short stories, or very short novelettes. Click the option to confirm it fits within my requirements.
