Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing
It is just one month until Text Publishing begins the search for the 2013 winner of the Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing?
The Text Prize is an annual search for the best unpublished manuscript written by an Australian or New Zealander for young adults or children. Past winners include Richard Newsome for The Billionaire's Curse, Jane Higgins for The Bridge, Leanne Hall for This is Shyness, Myke Bartlett for Fire in the Sea and A.J. Betts for Zac & Mia.
The Text Prize for Young Adult and Children's Writing is now in its sixth year and the 2013 winner will receive a publishing contract with Text Publishing worth $10,000.
One key thing to note is that our entry dates have moved forward this year.
Entries for this year's prize open on Monday 4 March and close on Wednesday 3 April.
