PGS Contributor Kate Osias Wins Canvas Young Readers Storywriting Contest

PGS contributor Kate Osias has won this year's Canvas Young Readers Storywriting Contest! An excerpt from the blog entry:

CANVAS is pleased to announce that Kate Osias has won our 2010 Storywriting for Young Readers Competition for her story, "Apolinario and the Name Trader."

Here's part of what Kelly Sonnack, agent for the US-based Andrea Brown Literary Agency had to say about it:

"I really enjoyed this manuscript. It has a traditional, classic feel that I like, while also feeling new and fresh – a good blend for today’s picture book market. It’s playful and capitalizes on something I think kids think about – how a different name might make you feel."
