Interested in being on the lineup at the 2017 Boston Teen Author Festival?
We're currently accepting applications from authors and publicists for those interested in being on the lineup at our sixth annual event on September 23, 2017! Please read the qualifications below to see what we're looking for this year. All submissions will be carefully considered but we unfortunately can't promise that all will be accepted. We sincerely thank you for your interest in our event!
Qualifications to be considered as a 2017 attending author:
- We currently only accept books published as Young Adult, or those that have strong cross-over appeal.
- Your book must have a release date between October 2016 and September 2017, or be able to be sold early if beyond that.
- Priority goes to authors who didn't attend in 2016 to keep the lineup fresh, but that doesn't automatically disqualify you!
- We are unfortunately not considering self-published authors at this time.
If you and your book qualify, please submit your information below! We also ask that you email a PDF of your book for our team to consider to BTAFAuthorApplications@gmail.com. If you would rather send a physical copy of your book or galley, please mention so in the comments field and we will contact you with the correct mailing address. We are not accepting physical copies at the Cambridge Public Library.
Thank you, we can't wait to hear from you!
