  1. This is very helpful. Thanks so much. Do you know where and how books can be entered for these festivals?

  2. Hi Donnet, unfortunately I have no idea…but you could follow the links to the individual festivals’ homepages or facebook pages and ask them directly. Hopefully they’ll have some info for you about how to get books into the festivals. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
