authors in schools application

Authors in Schools Program

We invite authors to share their experience with the students on Friday, February 15, 2019. Authors who apply to be considered for the Authors in Schools program should be willing to engage with the students at several sessions throughout the day at their assigned school. Each of Nassau County’s 16 public schools will be assigned an author. Depending on the success of our fundraising efforts, the Amelia Island Book Festival Board of Directors will purchase a number of the selected authors’ books for each school or class at discounted publisher prices. Our goal is to give each student a copy of the book of the author they meet.  Authors will provide their own transportation and accommodations. 


Application deadline is September 15th. 

Acceptance notifications and instructions will be sent by November 1st. 


Step One: Complete the application. 

Step Two: Mail two copies of your book via United States Postal Service to 

Amelia Island Book Festival, PO Box 15286, Fernandina Beach, FL, 32035. 

FedEx and UPS packages are not accepted.
