YA Contest Winners Announced!



Thank you, Anna Webman of Curtis Brown Ltd! Ms. Webman judged nearly 500 pages of material and shared this:

It wasn’t an easy decision. I have to say that I was very impressed with the overall quality of the writing and plotlines of the entries—clearly you have a very talented readership.


The winner of the Grand Prize (and full submission) is:

Jill Lawrence for her entry ON THE BEAM (Contemporary)


The runners-up (and partial submission winners) are:

Katherine Zane for A FOURTH OF AIR (Alternate History)

Alyssa Kirk for DEMONIC ATTRACTIONS (Urban Fantasy)

John Sankovich for GIFTS (Paranormal Fantasy)

Jane George for WELCOME TO CIRCUS FANTASTIQUE (Fantasy)


Congratulations to the winners! I will send you an email shortly with details of how to submit your material.

Thanks to all who participated. Keep an eye on the blog; we will have more contests in the future!

Suzette Saxton writes books for tots, teens, and in-betweens. She is represented by Suzie Townsend of FinePrint Literary.
