KidLitCon 2014 Update: Call for Session Proposals is Up!

Via the Kidlitosphere Central website, here's the latest on the Call for Session Proposals for this fall's KidLitCon (which Tanita and I are proudly helping to organize, along with Jen Robinson and a valiant and hardworking crew of other conference regulars).

KidLitCon will be held in Sacramento, CA on October 10th and 11th, with sessions held on both days. This year’s theme is Blogging Diversity in Young Adult and Children’s Lit: What’s Next?.

From the proposal submission form:

“We are looking for presentations and panels that will inspire and edify Kidlitosphere bloggers. While we’re specifically interested in presentations that address what bloggers can do to make a meaningful difference in increasing and promoting diversity in children’s and young adult literature, sessions covering other topics such as reviewing critically, trends, social media, marketing, technology, and industry relationships are welcome.”

This year’s Program Coordinator is Charlotte Taylor, who blogs at Charlotte’s Library. Charlotte prepared this year’s submission form with assistance from last year’s Coordinator, Jackie Parker from Interactive Reader. The deadline to submit a proposal is August 1st, so get cracking!
