This week's round-up of middle grade sci fi and fantasy from around the blogs (8/25/19)

Welcome to this round-up of what I found in my blog reading this week!  Please let me know of any posts I missed.

First up--the call for judges for the Cybils Awards has gone up!  Since 2006, the
Cybils has recognized kids and YA books that combine both literary merit and kid appeal in a variety of categories, and one of these is Middle Grade Speculative Fiction (the category I organize)!  There are two rounds of judging, the first creating a shortlist, and the second picking the winner, and so there's room for lots of folks to join in and be part of the judging panels!  It is lots of fun.  So much so that many of the same folks want do Middle Grade Speculative Fiction every year, and although I love them dearly, it would be great to have some fresh volunteers!

All you have to do to be eligible is to review books somewhere on line--podcasting, book tubbing, blogging, Goodreads reviews, Instagram, etc.

Teens are eligible too (with parents permission if under 18), and being one of the judges for a nationally recognized book award looks great on a college application.....

Here's a post I wrote with more information, and please let me know directly if you have any questions!
