Announcing our Keynote Speaker

If the chance to visit the Twin Cities wasn't enough...

If the opportunity to meet face to face with fellow kidlit bloggers didn't immediately grab your interest...

If being part of one of the largest growing blogcons* in the world didn't trip your trigger...

...then you're sure to get your registration form sent in pronto when you hear that our keynote speaker for KidlitCon 2010 will be Blogger and New York Times Bestselling Author Maggie Stiefvater!

As an accomplished painter and musician as well as a writer, Maggie Stiefvater has been involved in art on the Internet since well before she hit number one on the New York Times Bestseller list. As one of the three Merry Sisters of Fate, she’s been channeling her creative writing into a critique group blog that’s gained legions of devoted followers. She’s also the creator of her own highly innovative and highly viral book trailers. Maggie will reflect on what she’s learned as a blogging artist. She blogs at maggiestiefvater.blogspot.com and http://www.merryfates.com/. Follow her on Twitter at @mstiefvater.

Maggie will kick things off first thing Saturday morning, followed by a full day of what promises to be innovative and informative sessions (judging from the fine proposals we've seen come in so far....but don't let that stop you from submitting a proposal; plenty of room for more!).

Stay tuned to the blog for more exciting announcements as we continue to firm up details for KidlitCon 2010!

*=No data exists to back up this "fact." I just like the way it sounds. And now it's on the internet so it must be true.
