Katherine Langrish continues her series on witches in children's literature with Witch Queens and Crones.
The Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts has just issued their call for papers from their March 2011 meeting. The theme is The Fantastic Ridiculous, and there's a Children's and YA Division.
I've just sent in my registration for this year's Kidlit Con--you can find the information on how to do so here. I'm looking forward to seeing friends from last year, meeting other bloggers for the first time, and listening to keynote speaker Maggie Stiefvater!
It's Cybils time again--the call for panelists/judges has now gone out! It is incredibly worthwhile to be part of this process, so, fellow bloggers, do consider throwing your name in! Authors are welcome to take part, as long it is a genre in which they haven't published a book in this past year (October to October). You don't have to live in the US, either.
And finally, just because I think they're really cool, I'm passing on the news that a set of Science cookie cutters is being given away at Not So Humble Pie (enter by tomorrow). Although I think I would have made different frosting choices.
