2007 Cybils Poetry Panelists and Judges

I am excited to be serving as a member of the poetry-nominating panel for the 2007 Cybils. Once again, I will be in great company with a another fine group of kidlit bloggers. I truly enjoyed my experience last year.


Category Organizer: Kelly Fineman (Writing and Ruminating)

Nominating Panel:
Kelly Fineman (Writing and Ruminating)
Laura Purdie Salas (Wordy Girls)
Elaine Magliaro (Wild Rose Reader)
Wendy Betts (Blog from the Windowsill)
Sylvia Vardell (Poetry for Children)

Judging Panel:
Gregory K. (Gotta Book)
Jone Rush MacCulloch (Check It Out)
Sara Lewis Holmes (Read Write Believe)
Cloudscome (A Wrung Sponge)
Franki Sibberson (A Year of Reading)

I want to thank our Cybils founders, Anne Boles Levy of Book Buds and Kelly Herold of Big A, little a, for establishing these 21st century children's and young adult literature awards. Great idea, ladies!!!

It just wouldn't be right if you weren't on one of those committees some place! This category is in such great hands with all of you.
