This contest is your chance to show us your skills at crafting a narrative nonfiction picture book manuscript! Your manuscript should be about a true event or real person but told with storytelling elements including but not limited to character development, inciting incident, rising tension, climax, and resolution. Be sure your manuscript is well-researched and cite your resources.
Your narrative nonfiction picture book manuscript must be aimed at 6-8-year-olds with a beginning, middle, and end for your chance to win! Remember, a good picture book manuscript leaves room for plenty of illustration opportunities. (No illustrations should be sent with your entry. This is a text only contest.)
Entries must be no more than 800 words. Submissions must be previously unpublished and not under contract.
We can’t wait to hear your true stories!
