SCBWI Florida is
a state-wide chapter of the
Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators.
We are an organization of writers and illustrators of picture books,
middle grade readers, and young adult novels for children and teens.
Many of us attend weekly or
monthly critique groups within our localized areas. For more
information on joining SCBWI or one of our many writers' groups,
please contact our regional advisors.
OUR NEW VOICES WRITING CONTEST IS OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS
Always dreamed of writing a picture book? Know someone who has? Submissions are now open for our 2013 New Voices writing contest!
The contest is open to writers of color who are residents of the United States and who have not previously had a children's picture book published.
Manuscripts will be accepted from May 1, 2013, through September 30, 2013, and must be postmarked within that period.
The Award winner receives a cash prize of $1000 and our standard publication contract, including our basic advance and royalties for a first time author. An Honor Award winner will receive a cash prize of $500.
