There is a contest to consider for young adult writers. The Delacorte Press Contest is for U.S. and Canadian writers who have not previously published a young adult novel. They will begin taking submissions on Oct 1, 2010 and the contest will close Dec. 31, 2010. Click on the link for more details http://www.randomhouse.com/kids/writingcontests/
One lucky writer will walk away with a book contract! You gotta love contests for unpublished authors! Get busy on your entry today. And good luck!
