SYDNEY TAYLOR MANUSCRIPT COMPETITION APPLICATION FORM
The Association of Jewish Libraries is pleased to judge the Sydney Taylor Manuscript Competition and encourages your submission of the highest quality of work in the genre of Jewish children's literature. Sydney Taylor, in whose memory this award was established, began her writing career when the first of her All-of-a-Kind Family stories won a first-time publication and cash prize from Follett. Although AJL is not a publishing house and cannot guarantee publication, we expect that this competition—with its cash incentive and nationwide publicity—will launch many fine new children's writers on their careers in years to come and encourage the publication of outstanding new books with Jewish themes and universal appeal.
