Young Author Contest (YACK) from Eifrig Publishing

YACK Young Authors Creative Kids event

Eifrig Publishing wants to encourage young authors and they’re hosting a writing event to highlight the work of young creatives.  The lucky winners of YACK (Young Authors – Creative Kids) will have their books published as a paperback book with all proceeds going to a charity or non-profit of the child’s choice.  We can’t think of a better win-win contest than this.

All kids up to and including age 14 are eligible to enter prose, poetry, picture books, etc.  Kids can submit their stories (illustrated or not) by uploading them to the website www.eifrigpublishing.com or sending them to penny@eifrigpublishing.com.  All submissions will all be published online as “flip books.”

Selection

At the end of summer, a jury will be selecting one book by an elementary-aged child and one middle-schooler.
