Dear Friends,
Our in-person, face to face format has been a mainstay of the conference over the years – prompting some of our attendees to label their conference experience as “literary food for the soul.” An online version would not be the same. 
We look forward to having our 2021 presenters join us in 2022 – E. B. Lewis, Linda Sue Park, Laini Taylor, and Bahni Turnpin! 
But wait –  there will be a conference in February 2021! We are planning an event that will take advantage of a virtual format and still provide meaningful connections between our attendees and youth literature . 
Continue to save the last weekend in February for a Children’s Literature Extravaganza!
Details coming in October!

Thanks for your interest in the 2018 WWU Children’s Literature Conference. Registration is now closed due to sellout capacity. Mark your calendar for next year’s Conference ~ Saturday, February 23, 2019. Speakers will be announced on this site a few weeks after this year’s Conference. Registration for 2019 will open in mid-October.

Since our Conference is very full this year, we will not be taking any onsite registrations.
While the CLC is sold out, there is still plenty of space available for our companion event, nErDcamp Bellingham, on Sunday, February 25. We’d love to have you join us for this lively event.
