Introducing the Kids' Choice KidLit Writing Contest

Updated: Jan 7

Hello wonderful readers! I am THRILLED to be hosting a brand new writing contest in January 2022!

As we have all heard approximately 439,745 times, this industry is extremely subjective. What one agent loves will be an immediate pass for another. What one editor wants to throw all the money at will be what another completely ghosts. It just is what it is. But for me personally, the greatest form of praise is when a KID loves my manuscripts!

For a very long time I've wanted to host a writing contest, but I never knew what exactly I wanted to do. There are already so many amazing contests out there, so how would mine fit into the mix? Then it hit me... what if we had KID judges?? I loved the idea and I'm flying with it!

On January 7th 2022, I will post the theme and rules for this year's contest. You will have just over 3 weeks to craft your entries based on that info. Entries can then be submitted via my website January 31st through February 2nd. THEN (and this is the really exciting part) a panel of KID judges will review the entries and choose the winners!!
