call for nominations: glow in the woods awards winter 2008-09

It's time again for the much-loved Glow in the Woods Awards -- or better put, it's long past time! You may have noticed silence on the awards front for the past couple of months, but it's because we've decided to shake things up in the interest of finding and sharing more new voices in bulk.

From now on, we'll be recognizing and sharing the writing of babylost mothers and fathers four times a year -- once for each season. For Winter 2008-09, send us posts from December, January and February -- go here to nominate by no later than Friday, February 27th, and here to review the winners so far. On  March 1st, we'll announce the winner along with a list of all the nominees.

Please take a few moments to share with us what's moved you through the holiday and new year season -- through these months so full of such glittering hope and heart-of-winter darkness. Introduce us to voices we don't yet know, and remind us what we love about those we do.
