Correction! Deadline for the Jack Reid Scholarship Competition is October 21st

Oops! Blogger fail. In my previous post, I mentioned that today is the deadline for the Jack Reid Memorial Scholarship competition when it’s actually October 21st! Big, big oops. I’m posting this correction for those of you who read our feed only. My apologies and for more information, here’s what’s posted on our regional website:

JACK REID MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION

In memory of longtime volunteer Jack Reid, the MD/DE/WV SCBWI Region offers two scholarships, one for a writer and one for an illustrator, to the March 19-20 conference.  Writers wishing to apply should send up to 10 double-spaced pages of a work for children or young adults. Illustrators should send up to 3 jpg selections of their work. A cover letter, stating reason for applying, should accompany all entries.  When entering, state the year in which you are applying for a scholarship.

Applicants should include name on cover letters, but not in actual manuscripts or illustrations.  Submissions will be judged anonymously by the scholarship committee.

Please note that applicants must be current SCBWI members, living within our MD/DE/WV region and not currently represented by a literary agent or with a project (manuscript or illustrations) currently under contract.

Email your submission to MDDEWV@scbwi.org by Oct. 21, 2015.  Winners will be announced by Nov. 4, 2015.

Best of luck to all those who are submitting!

About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
