Children’s writer Deborah Lynn Jacobs has received an SCBWI Jane Yolen honor grant for mid-list authors. Jacobs, who writes speculative fiction for teens and has published Choices and Powers, is one of two honor grants recipients. Grant winner is New York native Eva Feldman.
Yolen, who has published more than 300 books, established the grant fund which provides one $2,000 award and two $500 honors a year, to help raise awareness in the publishing industry about authors’ current works in progress.
Deborah has been active in the Wisconsin chapter of SCBWI for many years and currently serves as the SE area rep.
