Add to Our Mock Newbery List: August Suggestions are Now Open
We’re just about one month away from the official start of our Heavy Medal Mock Newbery season. We’ve been gathering suggestions of possible contenders since March, and will finally begin discussing some of them in depth in early September. Until then, we’ll continue to add to our list. Please help by submitting your own suggestions in the comments below.
Guidelines for suggestions can be found in this earlier post, but the basics are:
- You can suggest up to 5 titles per month.
- You can add a bit about what you liked if you want (but you don’t have to).
- It’s fine to suggest titles that are already on our list (which you can find here).
- Please don’t suggest titles that haven’t been published yet (we’ll get to them eventually).
We’re a little late getting this post out, so instead of our usual Saturday deadline, we will keep the suggestion period open through Sunday, August 6th.
