We realize that KidLitCon 2019 is more than a year away, but some awesome people have committed to attending already! We are also proud to have a diverse group of presenters and attendees. Not only are teachers, librarians, bloggers, bookstagrammers, authors, illustrators and more represented, but we also have women and marginalized voices represented.
We are also seeking more voices in the children’s and YA publishing community: editors, PR firms/marketing folks, literary agents, illustration and children’s book writing professors, publishers, YouTube Vloggers, non-profit KidLit organizations etc. Finally, we are still trying to find an SEO expert as well as HTML/Blogger Tech person to join us. Thanks for your suggestions: KidLitCon (@) gmail (dot) com.
