If you're an author of at least two children's/young adult books, I know what you can do this snowy on the East Coast day!
Put together your application for the PEN/Phyllis Naylor Working Writer Fellowship of $5,000.
Who is eligible? "A candidate is a writer of children or young-adult fiction in financial need; candidates have published at least two novels for children or young adults which have been warmly received by literary critics, but have not generated sufficient income to support the author. The writer's books must be published by a U.S. publisher."
The PEN website has full details on how to apply. The deadline? January 14, 2010.
So go, go, go!
