Diverse Writing Awards from Lee & Low Books

It’s that time of year! Lee & Low is hosting its annual writing contests for writers of color in the United States. Writers have the option of submitting their work to the New Voices Award and/or the New Visions Award.

The New Voices Award, now in it’s 18th year, was established in 2000 and encourages writers of color to submit their work to a publisher that takes pride in nurturing new talent. The New Visions Award, now in it’s 5th year, was established in 2012 by Tu Books (an imprint of Lee & Low), awarding new talent in the middle grade and young adult genres.

Submission Deadline for the New Voices Award is September 30, 2017.
Submission Deadline for the  New Visions Award is October 31, 2017.
