Ooo! So exciting! Lee & Low's blog post today announces their 14th annual New Voices Award. It is "specifically designed to help authors of color break into publishing, an industry in which they are still dramatically underrepresented."
The contest is open to residents of the United States who are people of color who have not previously had a children's book published. Deadline is September 30, 2014.
Check out their blog post, submit your manuscript, and/or spread the good word!
