You may have heard rumblings about a new "Kidlit" blog popping up this week--and this is it! You've found us! Welcome to the Kidliterati blog! Hooray!
But before we get to all of the incredible prizes we're giving away in celebration of our launch, let's take a minute to talk about Kidlit. What, exactly, does this term mean? Kidlit is pretty straightforward by definition: writings intended for MG and YA audiences. Technically, that's the correct definition . . . and yet, Kidlit is so much more than that.
Kidlit is writing that crystallizes those indelible moments in our young lives--the times that never really leave us: first friends, first loves, first loss. Kidlit reflects who we are and how we were, and challenges us as to what we will become. Kidlit, in a word, is magic.
For those of us contributing to this blog, Kidlit is a passion, both as readers and writers. We've created this blog with a single goal in mind: getting to the heart of MG & YA books. Our features range from reviews to interviews to exposition on craft and readers, but in all cases, our goal remains the same--drilling down to the magic behind the words, the concepts and themes that keep us turning pages and losing sleep. The magic of Kidlit.
|Kidliterati Ten Interviews|
Our features will rotate each week, with new content every week. Be sure to check out the Kidliterati Ten, our special regular feature wherein we interview young readers about the books they love, including their questions for the authors (those answers you do not want to miss!).
We're thrilled to have you here, and to celebrate your arrival, we've put together an incredible launch giveaway (which starts Weds, July 10th)! Read on for the list of prizes, which include SIX fantastic ARCs and a whole slew of critiques from our agented and published authors (whom you can read more about here). We're happy to see you (this is us waving). Stop in and say hello!
