Carnival of Children's Literature Submissions


Friday, July 20 is the last day to submit entries to the July Carnival of Children's Literature. On that day, you have until 9 PM Pacific Standard Time to send me links to your favorite posts on your blogs. If you have any questions as to when that is in relation to where you are, you can check out this handy Time Zone Converter for you. I won't accept any late entries, even if your name is J.K. Rowling and your post is called "Naked Snape and the Wobbly Broomsticks." If you want to submit an article after the deadline, consider submitting it to the August Carnival of Children's Literature.

Hey, I was co-editorial editor on the high school newspaper. There were a number of times when I'd have to trim and winnow the opinions so that they fit just right-- only to have my teacher/advisor come in at the last minute and say, "A teacher wrote this, so you have to put it in." Then, I'd trim the opinions even more, and the writers the next day would complain, "You cut the wrong paragraphs."

Bones! I've been a Grouchy Ladybug about late submissions ever since.

Okay, okay. I'll look for a post. Thanks for organizing the Carnival!

Love the Magic 8 ball.

I haven't submitted because my children's literature writing has been scant lately, but you have my permission to take any posts that strike your fancy.

LSM: I grabbed your review of "Nancy Drew" from Daughter and a Movie.:)


HWM: I look forward to your carnival submission.

I've got computer woes, so until DELL arrives to fix them, I'll have to borrrow Bede's computer.

It does occur to me that your deadline means that you will just miss the Harry Potter posts...

LSM: I have a few HP posts already, and I'm actually glad that the deadline means that I'll miss potential spoilers. I, er planned it that way. Yes, planned it, I say. Hah!
