Subject: Children's Book Review Project

Dear National Reading Campaigners,

Over the past number of years, children's book reviews have disappeared from the pages of our newspapers.  The NRC has secured financing to hire professionals to review children's books, and arrange for publication of those in our partner newspapers, on our sponsors' websites, and in as many other outlets as possible. The reviews will carry a Creative Commons license that allows them to be used elsewhere, with attribution. This will be done that the reviews can be re-printed in school board newsletters, library websites, home schooling publications, daily and weekly newspapers or any other outlet.

We need to engage a freelance co-ordinator for the project, as well as ten reviewers, four of whom will work in French. (We will canvass our Quebec colleagues for suggestions for the French side.) We would like your suggestions of people you think would be good for either of these roles, and prepared to work for the modest fees involved. 

I've attached  job descriptions for both the co-ordinator and the reviewer positions, and I look forward to hearing your suggestions.

Best wishes,
