Submissions for issue #27 OPEN: Closing 16th April 2021
SLANZA are currently accepting articles and book reviews for our next Collected magazine edition with the theme:
School Libraries Transform
This can include articles on how a school library has been transformational for students, teachers, and the school community. You can discuss challenges you have faced or are facing, things that have been successful, ideas on how you see school libraries contributing in the future, and any other topic you feel fits this theme.
Each issue we like to ask a question and encourage as many people as possible to contribute.
