What? It's the next edition of the Carnival of Children's Literature. An online carnival is a round up of various posts from bloggers, submitted by the bloggers (tho sometimes the host also picks out blog entries they like). Here, the focus is Children's and YA literature. It's a great way to see what's happening in the kidlitosphere, get exposure for your blog, and be part of the online community.
Who & Where? Kelly at Big A little a is hosting. Because of the time in putting this together, the host blog changes from month to month. Having different blogs host it also increases the number of bloggers who find out about it and submit, making the Carnival even more interesting.
When? It will take place on July 23rd, so submissions are due by the 15th.
How? All the details are here.
Thanks to Melissa Wiley at Here In The Bonny Glen for reminding me, and for being the "take charge" person for the Carnival. She is seeking a host for the August edition.
