Subject: Information for Interior Writers Group


My mother, Lynn Manuel, was a children's author in British Columbia. She published over two dozen books and she was a mentor to many young writers in our province until she passed away from cancer three years ago. In collaboration with a network of children's librarians, other Canadian authors, and publishing professionals, we have organized the first annual Lynn Manuel Children's Fiction Contest. I am passing along this information in case there are writers in your group that have an interest in writing for children, or they may know of other writers who aspire in this genre. 


Our Contest Judge is Governor-General's Award-winning children's author Arthur Slade. Prize is $500 plus publication with a $1000 advance on royalties. All the contest specifics may be read at www.grasmerepublishing.com. The deadline is March 1, 2014. Writers must be unpublished in children's fiction as we wish to discover and support new children's writers.


We are sending posters out to BC libraries, but I wanted to connect personally with writing groups in British Columbia. I am very appreciative if you are able to let your members know. In addition to the website, I am available at this email or the numbers below if anybody has any questions.


Kindest Regards,


Jennifer Manuel
