Jane Yolen Mid-list Author Grants

Critically acclaimed children’s book author Jane Yolen created this grant to honor the contribution of mid-list authors.  The grant awards $3,000 to mid-list authors and aims to help raise awareness about their current works in progress.  Jane was the first SCBWI Regional Advisor and currently sits on the SCBWI Board of Advisors.

This award is given to writers who have had good careers, and not for a lack of talent, have perhaps stalled out. This is our way to say what you write is powerful and important and we don't want you to stop. 

Honor grants to...

Verla Kay
Deborah Lynn Jacobs

Congratulations to you both. 

And the WINNER of the Jane Yolen Mid-list Author Grant goes to...

Author of such works as BILLY AND MILLY, SHORT AND SILLY! (Putnam) and DOG CRAZY (Tambourine)

We look forward to the work we have yet to see from these wonderful authors.
