For a full list of nominations, go here: "2019 Quill Nominations.



Hello and welcome to the 2019 PreQuill Gala! Thanks to all who nominated and congratulations to all those who were nominated!


What's a PreQuill, you ask? Well, it's a red carpet event for all our nominees, panelists, and friends (and anyone who wants to attend) to come and mingle! At this event:

- you'll experience the big reveal of who the finalists are in 16 big categories; and
- we'll present 17 Quill Awards in smaller categories.


PreQuill Ceremony Manners:
*Quill* I will give an introduction at the beginning and the presenters will give a little spiel on each award, followed by the announcement of the winner.
*Quill* After each winner is announced, there will be a minute or so of time for the winner to post an acceptance speech if he/she is so inclined and/or present.
*Quill* For the PreQuill, you're invited and encouraged to chat along in the thread! Feel free to give comments, congratulate winners, call out your favorites, describe your attire, etc., etc. (Hint: Press the F5 key to refresh the page and keep up with comments *Wink*)
*Quill* You're also welcome to talk in this item both before and after the ceremony.
*Quill* Keep it in the rating please!

Elle says "So while Kittiara will be your Quillmaster next year, I assure you that I am not going to be far away, and I will continue to help her behind the scenes, just as she did for me. And the following year you'll be back to me, and so on and so forth. "
