Write YA fiction? Elephant Rock Books are launching a new Young Adult imprint and are initiating this imprint with a book prize! Click the link below for more details.
Elephant Rock Books are after quality stories with heart, guts, and a clear voice. They’re especially interested in the quirky and the hopeful and the real. They are not particularly interested in genre fiction and prefer stand-alone novels, unless you’ve got the next Hunger Games. We seek writers who believe in the transformative power of a great story, so show us what you’ve got.
Winner will receive a $1,000 lump-sum prize as part of their book deal with our new imprint Elephant Rock Books YA.
