Seeking Guest Bloggers

2018 is well on its way! Which means we here at Guessing Geisel are seeking guest bloggers. You might be a good guest blogger candidate if:
  • You are a public or school librarian or teacher passionate about beginning readers.
  • You have served on a beginning reader award committee (Geisel, Maryland Blue Crab, etc.) or a best books committee that included beginning readers.
  • You are interested in digging into the Geisel Award criteria.
 If one or more of these statements applies to you, we encourage you to consider guest blogging for us.
For the past two years we've had a great roster of guest contributors who brought a variety of perspectives, observations, and experiences to the shared table. Guest contributors are asked to write at least one blog post between June and December. Posts are approximately 500 words and focus either on a current Geisel contender or on a topic related to beginning readers.
If you’d like to participate, please email us at by May 1, 2018. In that email include a short paragraph to let us know:
  • Your name Position/Organization
  • If you’re a school or public librarian or teacher
  • Why you’d be an excellent guest contributor
  • Tell us at least 3 beginning reader titles (already or soon to be published in 2018) and/or topics that you’d like to blog about  
If you have questions, you can comment below or send us an email.
