I’m a Librarian. What do I need to do?


Aspiring authors NEED YOU to tell them about the contests!

Thank you for being part of this valuable, library-driven initiative. The 2024 Soon to Be Famous Illinois Author Project runs April 1, 2024 to June 1, 2024. Please find downloadable, printable, and shareable promotions here.

Unlike past contests, we no longer require library recommendations for the authors. Authors can submit directly and are only asked to indicate their home library on the online submission form.

Help us continue to spread the word to your aspiring local authors using these free resources.
