Poetry Friday: Announcing the CYBILS Poetry Panelists and Judges


It’s Friday. Head to The Poem Farm for more poetry.

Selecting from the CYBILS applicants is always SO difficult. There are such good applicants that are passionate about poetry. It makes me do the happy dance!  After considering those who are seasoned and those who are new, blending together a mixture of librarian, author, parent, and teacher bloggers; may I present Round One and Round Two.  The poetry books will be read by two fabulous groups.

And please, if you weren’t selected or had too much on your plate to consider being on the CYBILS Poetry Team, start thinking about which poetry books should be nominated starting on October 1.

  1. Jone – You are so fabulous to do this important work. Thank you from all of us! Happy happy Poetry Friday and a wonderful fall to you. I look forward to seeing what happens with the Cybils as the season goes on. 🙂

  2. I’m so excited to work on the panel again, Jone. And Carol’s Serenity Gallery is a beautiful end to summer, isn’t it? It includes so much that I know I’ll return again and again.

  3. Looking forward to judging the 2nd round again – and eager to see which books the 1st-round panel sends us! (Also, thanks for sharing Carol’s Gallery – loved it)
