Writing Ilustration Competition

Hello MFAers,

I came across a competition seeking unpublished writers and illustrators of children books for a statewide juried competition, the 2008 Tassy Walden Awards for New Voices in Children's Literature.

When I saw the listing for the competition in the Hartford Courant, the first thing I thought about was the presentation we had by Karen Romano Young on publishing children's work.

Guidelines for the contest may be downloaded from the Shoreline Arts Alliance website, (click on programs and scroll down to Tassy), by calling the office at 203.453.3890, or by emailing at

Barnes and Noble is a major sponsor and the submission deadline for manuscripts and portfolios is Feb. 13, 2008.

Good luck.
