Authors and Illustrators Application Form
Deadline for submission: January 31, 2024
Filling out and submitting this form means you are committing to being present at the Festival should your application be approved. For our ninth year we will be selecting between eighteen (18) and twenty (20) authors/illustrators. Those with a new book out in 2022/23 will be given preference. Audience: Pre-K through Eighth grade children.
Talbot County has a diverse population and we hope to find authors and illustrators that represent diverse backgrounds. Traditionally published books are preferred. A limited number of independently published books may be accepted.
Applicants will be notified in early March. This year's festival will be held in the Talbot County Free Library, Easton branch.
