Kaylor’s Writing Recognized

Churchnet Editorial Assistant Brian Kaylor recently garnered two honors for his writing. In April, Kaylor received the Religion Communicators Council's Wilbur Award for best nonfiction book. His book, Presidential Campaign Rhetoric in an Age of Confessional Politics, was published in 2011 but also recently came out in an updated paperback edition. Last year, the award recognized a book by Harvard Professor Robert Putnam and Notre Dame Professor David Campbell, and the previous year the award went to best-selling author Mitch Albom.

Last month, the Religion Newswriters Association named Kaylor a finalist for Religion Reporter of the Year (in large newspapers/wire services category). Kaylor received the recognition for his writing for Ethics Daily, the news arm of the Baptist Center for Ethics. Other finalists in that category this year include reporters for the Associated Press, Religion News Service, and Washington Post Sunday Magazine.

In the past, Kaylor has also won several other writing awards, including some from the Baptist Communicators Association, National Communication Association, and Religious Communication Association. Some of Kaylor’s awards were for writing he does for Churchnet.
