We are so excited to announce that “Into the Vast” by Laura Williams McCaffrey has won the Magazine Merit Award for Fiction!

The Magazine Merit awards are given by the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) every year in the categories of Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, and Illustration.  Last year, “Swimming Naked” was awarded an Honor for Fiction.

This year, YARN is honored to be in the company of venerable children’s lit journals Cricket, Lady Bug, and Highlights.

THANK YOU, SCBWI, and a hearty CONGRATULATIONS-Hurray-Break-Out-The-Ice-Cream YAY to Laura Williams McCaffrey.

If you haven’t read this amazing story about dragons already, what are you waiting for??  If you have already read it, surely you want to forward it along to someone who hasn’t yet?

Happy reading.
