🚨 We had a flurry of #Kweli22Virtual registrations last night & we don't want anyone to miss out so we're EXTENDING THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE THROUGH THE WEEKEND!
Many of the new signups are *not* traditional #KidLit creators! This has us thinking about Edwidge Danticat’s incredible keynote presentation at Kweli Conference 2016.
Like Toni Morrison and Ntozake Shange, Danticat talks about seeing the "sky as her ceiling" and refusing to limit herself to writing for one audience. She asked, "Does your face light up when you think about writing for young people? Does your face light up when you think how much your work might make a young person feel appreciated or validated or less traumatized or less alone?”
If these beautiful questions resonate with you, consider joining us at this year’s Conference! Tell a friend who has a book for young people in their heart. Register here: https://tinyurl.com/2p96pr78
