Delacorte Press Contest for First Young Adult Novel

The deadline for the Delacorte Press Contest for a First Young Adult Novel is coming up uber fast. (I have never quite figured out why they post it under Kids@Random House, since it's open to any writer who has not previously published a young adult novel, but...) So dust off your manuscripts, polish them up, and send them in. December 31, 2008 looms.

  • Contemporary setting suitable for readers ages 12 to 18;
  • Manuscripts should be 100 to 224 typed, double-spaced pages;
  • Include a cover page with title, author, address, and phone number;
  • Submit in padded envelope; Include SASE for notification only.
  • No simultaneous submissions;
  • Authors may submit up to two manuscripts to the competition.
