If anyone has a middle grade or young adult manuscript ready to submit, you may want to enter it for the Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award. This is for unpublished novelists only.

Entries are being accepted NOW. You can find the application at:

The first thing that comes up is an explanation of the award, followed by the list of previous winners.

Scroll past all that stuff until you get to the blue banner that says Sydney Taylor Manuscript Award - Rules. There, you will find a long list of rules which must be followed in order to submit. It says the due date is September 5, but the award chair told me she is extending it to October 5.

Having trouble registering? Does something on the board not work correctly? If so, use the Contact button at the top of the page and we will get back to you. Note: questions about writing, publishing, or "how to post" are NOT answered through the Contact button. If you are registered, scroll the Home page to find categories where you can post. Only registered members can post.
