Calling All Young Adult and Children’s Writers

I keep forgetting to post about this, but it is that time of year again. The time to submit to the Katherine Paterson Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing at Hunger Mountain! There are three different categories: Young Adult, Middle Grade, and Picture Book. One first prize winner wins $1000 and runners-up chosen from each of the three categories win $100.

The deadline is July 30th and you can submit online here:

The judge this year is Kimberly Willis Holt, author of the Piper Reed series, My Louisiana Sky, Mister and Me, Dancing in Cadillac Light, Keeper of the Night, Waiting for Gregory, Part of Me, and Skinny Brown Dog; winner of the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for When Zachary Beaver Came to Town; and winner of the 2011 YALSA BEST FICTION for Young Adults for The Water Seeker.

I do hope you’ll all submit something 🙂
