I start in early January and am unbelievably excited to join a team of enthusiastic book lovers. CYL - "...promotes reading for pleasure for all young people and champions youth literature across the broader cultural spectrum. It is a national resource and network, with international connections in the field. It produces events for young readers, professional development programs, a website, blog and multimedia, and advises and consults on youth literature."
See why I am thrilled? I am excited to move to Melbourne. I am excited to work with similarly minded people. I am excited to have youth literature become part of my profession full time, instead of the occasional class and PSnark. Change is an awesome thing.
What this means?
- I am moving home within the next two weeks
- Then I am moving to Melbourne (any advice is much welcomed)
- PSnark has an indeterminate future. (I will be working with authors a lot and there are some obvious issues if I continue to review.) I will keep you updated.
