YARN Garners Several SCBWI Magazine Merits!!

Woot!  We did it again 😉

The SCBWI Magazine Merit awards for 2106 are out, and YARN has again swept top awards in the YA fiction/nonfiction category.  The plaque went to Lynn Vande Stouwe for “Winterim,” and the Honor went to Beth Grosart for “Two Truths and a Lie.”

Letters of Merit also went to Jennifer Honeybourne for “The Color of Mourning” and to Meghan Mikhail for “Small Silences.”

CONGRATS to Lynn, Beth, Jennifer, and Meghan who wrote wonderfully complex and textured stories about teens, and to Diana Renn our exiting Fiction Editor, for making sure we published them.

Happy summer, indeed.
