CANSCAIP announces longlist for 2019 Writing for Children Competition


Congratulations to everyone who’s made the longlist for this year’s CANSCAIP competition and most especially to everyone I know from my classes, workshops, and whatnot – Caroline, Jillian, Brandy, Chang, Robin, Diana, Erin, Rowena, Vera, Donna, Julie, Nancy, Jennifer, Stacey, Megan, Sally, Karon, and Karon's daughter Laura {it's so cool you're both on the list.} 
And if I’ve missed anyone, my apologies – it’s getting hard to remember everyone’s name. Please send me an indignant email and let me make amends. ~Brian
Here’s the media release from CANSCAIP….

August 30, 2019: CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators and Performers) is pleased to announce the longlist for the 22nd annual Writing for Children Competition.  
More than 500 entries were received. All the entries were evaluated by first-round readers who selected which entries would proceed to second-round readers.  The second-round readers selected the entries that will now proceed to the juries: the longlist.  From the longlist of entries, the juries will select finalists and winners, to be announced in October.
CANSCAIP congratulates all the writers whose entries were selected for the longlist:
