Young Writers for Young Readers
What are young people thinking about during the pandemic, when nothing is like normal? With a new writing award, Unga skriver för unga, Tensta konsthall and the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award hope to inspire children to spend more time writing and putting their emotions into words.
The prize is awarded to authors, illustrators and narrators, but also to people or organisations that work to promote reading.
After months—sometimes years—of painstaking deliberation and preparations, in the spring one or more laureates are named. The jury will announce the new laureate(s) on March 30, 2021.
Everything great that ever happened in this world happened first in somebody’s imagination. Children create miracles when they read.
