In honor of Jennifer Lane Wilson, a regional member and avid volunteer for SCBWI who passed away in 2020, we are offering a one time scholarship to the fall 2021 KSMO Middle of the Map Conference to be held November 5-7 for a promising Non-fiction Picture Book. The scholarship includes conference registration fees.
Due to changing Covid guidelines, it is not yet known if the conference will be held in Overland Park, Kansas or take place virtually. The scholarship is available to SCBWI members who are not previously published by a publisher on the PAL list in this format (Non-fiction picture books) who live in Kansas or Missouri.
Her critique group, Picture Book Junkies (PBJ), will narrow down the submissions. The winning manuscript will be selected by Jennifer’s husband, Kevin, and her two adult children, Elliee and Graham. SCBWI Kansas/Missouri will notify the winner in July.
