Though today's posting does not deal with children's poetry, it is one that deals with a children's literature event that may be of interest to you and others you know.
In my role as co-representative of the Quebec chapter of the Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators and Performers (CANSCAIP), I am hosting a conference on the last Saturday of this month in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. There are still spots available for those who wish to attend but haven't registered yet. You can even sign up at the conference during the registration time which takes place just before the event gets underway.
Yes Oui CANSCAIP will host the inaugural edition of "Imagine a Story", a one-day conference for emerging and established creators of works for children. The event takes place on Saturday, May 29, 2010 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Dawson College [3040 Sherbrooke St. W., Room 4C1 (Amphitheater), Montreal]. Vermont picture-book and young-adult author Tanya Lee Stone, Ontario author-editor Shelley Tanaka, and Quebec author-illustrator-filmmaker Janet Perlman are just a few of the individuals scheduled to speak at the event. Full conference details and registration information are available online at www.yesouicanscaip.ca. Yes Oui CANSCAIP is the Quebec chapter of CANSCAIP (Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators and Performers).
