We are excited to be organizing a face-to-face conference for March 18–19, 2022 after having had an online conference last year. Our 53rd Georgia Conference on Children’s Literature will have a great line-up of authors and illustrators, as well as an exciting list of sessions.
The two-day conference will be held at the UGA Center for Continuing Education & Hotel and is organized by the Department of Language and Literacy Education.
But we need you to make it happen!
We are now accepting proposals for breakout sessions at our 2022 conference. We welcome submissions from teachers, school library media specialists / librarians, graduate students, college faculty, authors, illustrators, and others with knowledge and enthusiasm to share about the field of children’s / young adult literature.
Abstract is limited to 50 words (this is what will appear on the conference program).
Paper or presentation description is limited to 250 words.
All papers must be original.
While breakout sessions are open regarding theme, they usually address one of these four areas:
- Children’s / YA literature in the classroom
- Children’s / YA literature as life inspiration
- Public libraries and children’s / YA literature
- Inquiry into children’s / YA literature
NOTE: Acceptance notification will be available early December 2021. If your proposal is accepted, all presenters and co-presenters are required to register for the conference (including registration cost) by the early registration deadline (date TBD) in order to be included on the program and present at the conference.
Please submit your proposals here. We look forward to receiving your proposals!
Deadline: October 31, 2021
