It's time for Southern Breezers to put their best work forward for our annual Writing and Illustrating Contest! This is your chance to get your work seen, critiqued and possibly honored by the industry giants we have lined up for each category.

Neal Porter, who founded Neal Porter Books, an imprint of Roaring Brook Press, will be judging PICTURE BOOK manuscripts.
Sarah Barley, Children's Book Editor at Harper Collins, will judge the NOVELS.
Giuseppe Castellano, Art Director of Penguin Group USA, will judge ILLUSTRATIONS.

The illustration prompt is: "Look out PJ, it's........!"

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each category will be announced at WIK14 in October, be featured in the Southern Breeze newsletter and website. First place winners will receive free tuition to a future WIK conference.
