Cybils Blog Information and Schedule

About the Cybils Blog

The Cybils blog is the heartbeat of Cybils Central and the place to go for the latest news and updates. In addition to updates about the award, we post book reviews of the nominated books throughout the award season. In the off-season, we post additional book-related content, including interviews with the winning authors & illustrators, and thematic lists drawn from all years’ winners, finalists, and nominees. To keep up with the latest posts, add the Cybils blog to your blog reader, or you can subscribe to one or more of our newsletters to receive related blog posts by email. Please note that we do not review books directly on the Cybils blog, so please do not send review requests. All reviews are drawn from reviews on judges’ own blogs at the discretion of the blog editor.

Contribute to the Cybils Blog

From time to time, we’ll have opportunities for bloggers to contribute to the Cybils blog. Currently, we are in need of thematic book lists drawn from the Cybils books. If you’re interested in contributing a list, please contact our blog editor Melissa at blogeditor at cybils dot com with a proposed theme and date. Our editorial calendar below shows what lists are currently scheduled, and what dates are open. Lists should:

  • Include no more than 10 books on a theme of your choice.
  • Be drawn from Cybils winners, finalists, or nominees for any year since our inception.
  • Be annotated with a short blurb or booktalk for each book.

We cannot pay for contributions, but bloggers will be given credit with a link back to your blog. Also, please nominate your favorite blogger for Featured Blogger! Send nominations to blogeditor at cybils dot com
