Welcome to KidLitTakeaways! If you’re a busy children’s writer like us, you’re eager to develop your craft, but you can’t attend every conference or watch every webinar. You’re looking for a quick burst of inspiration to guide your writing & keep you on track. You want to learn from real experiences & find a community of authors who share and support your passion for writing for children.
You’ve come to the right place! We’ve been critique partners for the past few years and have been exchanging ideas about our writing experiences along the way. We hope to share our writing journey with you through ongoing blog posts—takeaway messages from conferences, webinars, book reviews, submissions, rejections and those magical acceptances. This blog will include short snippets of information, each with a quick takeaway for you to weave into your writing. Please check in often, give feedback, and sign up if you would like email notifications. Let’s take-it-away together!
The takeaway: We’re looking forward to continuing our writing journey with you!
