The Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgendered Round Table of the American Library Association needs your help!

Here is your chance to use your talents to help your fellow GLBT librarians, and it doesn’t require leaving the comfort of your home, traveling to ALA, and attending multiple meetings!!

The Book Awards Committee of the GLBT-RT is looking for graphic artists to submit ideas for a poster celebrating the 30th anniversary of the ALA-GLBT book award.

The idea is to have something similar to a Caldecott/Newbery awards poster, but emphasizing GLBT-RT book award winners, finalists, etc. The poster should be colorful, clear, and concise. The design should be original, rather than a poster showing book covers of all award winners. Preferably, the design and content should not become quickly outdated.

ALA would be responsible for poster production, and the poster would be marketed through ALA Graphics and the ALA store.

Deadline for submissions: November 30, 2000

To redress the paucity and disparate state of existing scholarship on queer comics, the editors of this scholarly anthology invite submissions of original art, interviews, and critical essays on the cultures of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and queer comics and related media. The editors aim to unite the best classic artwork and essays with innovative and exciting imagery and investigations into queer comic strips, comic books, and graphic novels. More info from Anne N.
