Two Contests for Kids Writers

If anyone prides themselves on having a beat on ongoing writing contests hosted by editors, agents and other professionals, they should contact me. I would love to have a recurring contests update on here. Recently, I got wind of two different contests happening now/soon. Check them out:

1. Kids agent Mary Kole, who I recently interviewed, is hosting a contest on her KidLit blog, inviting writers to submit the first 500 words of their finished young adult or middle grade novel. Deadline: Jan. 31, 2010. See all details here.

2. Sourcebooks is launching a new young adult imprint called Sourcebooks Fire and is hosting a contest for YA writers. You’re invited to submit your pitch, a bio and the title. Contest runs from Feb. 1 to Feb. 28, 2010. See all details here.
