The 2016 Susan P. Bloom Children's Book Discovery Awards, sponsored by Pen New England, were announced last week. I've barely noticed these things in the past. However, this year I almost know one of the winners, Michelle Cusolito. So, okay, I'm paying a little more attention.
A number of prior winners have gone on to publication. Some have done quite well.
Therefore, congratulations, all, and good luck in the future.
