PAL Publishers

 

PAL stands for "Published and Listed.“ These are books published by traditional publishing houses that do not charge money to author or illustrators. Only PAL books are eligible for the Crystal Kite Awards and may be sold at SCBWI events. All published children's books (both PAL and non-PAL) are eligible for the Golden Kite Awards, Book Launch Grant, Online Book Launch Parties, and can be sold in the SCBWI Online Bookstore.
