Diverse Voices Fall 2016 Finalists

By December 15, 2016No Comments

Once again, thank you to everyone who entered for helping support Books for Kids with over $3,000 this year between the two seasons of Diverse Voices; we're extremely excited to support this amazing organization. We encourage everyone to check out this program and all they're doing.

This Diverse Voices contest has brought together so much amazing talent and so many incredible stories. Everyone in the contest who made it this far deserves a round of applause. Just because a project may not have advanced doesn't at all mean that it isn't a fantastic story. In fact, we're certain that some scripts not advancing will bring their writer success in the very near future.

We also want to extend a sincere congratulations to everyone advancing. If you are advancing it means that after three reads, your judges agreed that this is a stand out story that needs to be told. Please make sure to congratulate these writers on the Facebook announcement — they deserve it!
