For a number of years I have been very active with PEN NEW ENGLAND, an organizaton for writers and anyone who loves the printed word and who cares about literary freedom.

Here is some information about our annual award, the Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award, and right now is the time of year to think about sending in your work to be considered.

Several winners from past years have gone on to have their work published successfully.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES


Each year, the PEN New England Children’s Book Caucus honors emerging writers and writer/illustrators with its Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award. Winners will present their work to the public at the PEN New England Children’s Book Discovery Evening in April 2008, and winning manuscripts will be read by editors from Candlewick, Houghton Mifflin, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, or Little, Brown and Company.

Entrants must be residents of New England who have not been published in any genre (with the exception of magazines or self-publishing), and the submitted work (or another work) must not be under contract. We are able to accept only one entry per person, in one of the following four categories: picture books, novels, poetry and nonfiction.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 1, 2008. Entries need only be postmarked by that date. If you want to be sure your entry has been received, enclose a self-addressed and stamped postcard. Please do not require a signature for delivery.

All work should be—in both format and quality—ready for consideration by a publisher. The Caucus does not determine ahead of time the number of winners or the categories to be represented. Winners will be notified by late March.

To submit your work, please follow these guidelines:

1. Each submission of text should be approximately 10 pages in length, though picture books may be shorter. PLEASE NOTE: Manuscripts will not be returned.

Picture books: Send complete text. If you are a writer and not an illustrator, there is no need to send along illustrations. Similarly, illustrators are encouraged to submit illustrations without text. Author/illustrators should include sample illustrations or a book dummy, which will be returned if an appropriate SASE is provided. Do not send original artwork.
Middle grade or Y/A novels: Send one or two chapters.
Poetry: Send up to ten poems.
Nonfiction: Send one or two chapters, plus a brief outline or table of contents.

2. For longer works, submissions may include a synopsis or outline, although it is not required.

3. Include a short biographical statement about your experience and interest in the field.

4. Include a phone number and e-mail address (if available).

5. Enclose a business-sized SASE for notification of decisions.

6. Mail your submission to:
PEN New England/CBC Discovery Night

i am *wildly* jealous of you. a few years ago, i bought a children's cotton candy maker. it turned out to be underwhelming -- the process took forever, and the finished cotton candy was the size of one's thumb -- so i pitched it.

We live in Dubai part of the year, and last year at my children's school they held an int'l food festival.
Korea with exotic noodles and Jordan with baklava and Russia with Borsch....and so on.
But the longest line was at the American stand. Yep. Cotton Candy.

I am an avid reader of your books. My favorite book of all time is The Giver. It suprising how that community relavates to ours.Do you ever feel frustrated when you are writing and then what do yuo do? what happens if your editing company does not like your book? what do you do?

Vita Vea, Washington: A freakish athlete,NFL Jerseys Vea actually played as a 350-pound edge rusher at times two years ago due to the team's injuries at the position. He can stand up double-teams and attack ball carriers.NFL Cheap Sports Jerseys Being part of a rotation at the next level will help him stay fresh, maximizing his talents. Maurice Hurst, Michigan: A quick first step makes Hurst the most dangerous penetrator in this group.Adidas NHL Jersey He plays strong for his size (6-foot-1, 292 pounds), as well. He was diagnosed with a heart condition at the NFL Scouting Combine, Adidas NBA Swingman Jersey but was later cleared by doctors to participate in Michigan's pro day and was not asked to return for the combine medical recheck, which was a good sign. Da'Ron Payne, Alabama: Payne's disruptive play in the College Football Playoff gave him a boost heading into the draft process. Stitched NCAA Hockey Jersey He
demonstrated that quickness all season, though, and at the combine, too. CFL Jersey Teams seeking a nose tackle with quickness to challenge gaps on a consistent basis will look his
way early in the draft.Taven Bryan, Florida: Bryan was not the most productive player during his time at Florida,Flex Base Baseball Jersey especially in his first two years. However, his natural ability is evident, as is his motor. At 6-5, 291 pounds, Soccer Club Jersey Bryan might fit best as a five-technique. Harrison Phillips, Stanford: Phillips is a strong defender who's difficult to move.Women Jersey His agility and nose for the ball in traffic are exemplary; it's rare for a tackle to lead his team in tackles, as Phillips did last season with 103 stops, even if two-thirds of the tackles were assists. Da'Shawn Hand, Alabama:
