Book Links announces new children’s historical fiction award
Book Links, the Centre for Children’s Literature in Queensland, has announced a new biennial award, the Book Links Award for Children’s Historical Fiction.
A prize of $1000 will be awarded to an Australian book published in the last two years that is ‘not only an outstanding work of fiction but excels at increasing the awareness and developing the understanding of history in children’. Books written for an implied readership of up to 14 years are eligible for the prize.
Submissions for the Book Links Award for Children’s Historical Fiction are now open. For more information on the submission process, see the Book Links website.
