2015 Paterson Prize for BFYP

Did you have a book for Young People published in 2014? You have until March 15, 2015 to submit your book for consideration for The Paterson Prize For Books For Young People. Scroll down to see last years winning books. The ones I viewed were not poetry books, just in case you thought that due to it being sponsored by the Poetry Center.

  3. Kathy,
    Do you know if this competition is only open to Americans? It seems that all the past winners were from the United States. I have a friend from Greece who was looking at this. If he can get the books in on time, can he enter?


    • Connie,

      They don’t say anything about that, so I honestly do not know. Why don’t you contact them? Let me know if you find out.
