It’s the time when authors and makers of various kinds like to present, submit for consideration for various awards, and reflect on the work they’ve produced in the past year. Because we do so much together, we thought that we would combine our posts this year, presenting our co-authored work and our solo work in one post :). Since this is the Carterhaugh School blog after all, we would also like to (perhaps unconventionally) submit the school itself for consideration!

The Carterhaugh School of Folklore and the Fantastic:
This is perhaps an odd idea–we don’t think online schools are usually thought of for these kinds of awards–but we would like to submit our Carterhaugh School for consideration for awards such as, potentially, the Hugo Awards’ Best Related Work and/or Best Fancast and the World Fantasy Awards’ Special Awards. We believe in our contribution to the speculative world and would love for more people to see the work we’re doing, all of us, together here!
