The deadline has been extended to March 3 for nominations for this year’s $5,000 PEN/Phyllis Reynolds Naylor Working Writer Fellowship. A candidate must be a writer of children’s or young-adult fiction in financial need; candidates have published at least two novels for children or young adults which have been warmly received by literary critics, but have not generated sufficient income to support the author. The writer’s books must be published by a U.S. publisher. Please consider nominating someone, and let your fellow authors know about the award and the extension of the deadline.
