Call for Proposals

Breakout Session Presentations

Conference Theme: Honoring Student Identities while Building a Strong Foundation for Learning: The Role of Children's and You Adult Literature

October 25- Children's Day 

October 26 - Young Adult Day 

Proposals for breakout sessions must relate to the conference theme and address aspects of literacy as they relate to using young adult and children's literature in the classroom. All proposals will undergo a blind, peer review process. All proposals will be reviewed, but accepted proposals will not be considered for inclusion in the conference program without an accompanying registration.

Breakout sessions are 50 minutes in length and are held in both the mornings and afternoons. If accepted, you may be asked to present at one or both sessions. You will be contacted via email regarding receipt of your proposal and again if the proposal is accepted. Once your proposal is accepted, if you have not yet registered, you will need to do so within 24 hours in order to be included in the program. You will also need to contact any co-presenters of your proposal’s acceptance.

Important: The KSU Conference on Literature for Children and Young Adults is a not-for-profit organization, therefore, the financial viability of our annual conference depends upon the support of everyone who attends. Invited presenters are required to register for the conference before final proposal acceptance will be granted.
