Got sidelined this last week with allergies and revisions, but I'm back with a post on the Katherine Paterson Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing

Quick facts
Deadline: Postmarked by June 30, or enter electronically online
Entry Fee: $20
Length: Up to 10,000 words (can be a story or a stand-alone excerpt from a novel)
Judge: Holly Black

If you don't make this deadline, the Hunger Mountain journal is also a paying market year round:

"YA and Children’s Writing
We accept picture book, middle grade, YA and YA crossover work (text only—for now). We’re looking for polished pieces that entertain, that show the range of adolescent experience, and that are compelling, creative and will appeal to the devoted followers of the kid-lit craft, as well as the child inside us all."

Thanks for the heads-up. You are a research godess!

And here I was beating myself up for posting it with only 3 weeks to go! I entered last year, but I don't have anything for this year.
