Welcome to Kid Lit Universe!
Everyone has heard that writing is a lonely pursuit. And there are times when this is very true. But I have also found I can build my own universe full of other writers, illustrators, creative and encouraging critique partners, masters of revision, and more importantly, beta readers. This allows me to see the big picture, to be nurtured while nurturing others, and to continually improve at my craft.
I’m never more energized to write then when I am with my peers. They cheer me on, hand me tissues when I need to kill my darlings, and push me forward with a gentle nudge when fear paralyzes me and keeps me from submitting, rewriting, or re-imagining, as well as supporting me when the many unpredictable life events get in the way.
Kid Lit Universe is about bringing together resources, guest bloggers, getting the writing done, and showcasing great books and authors, while exploring all things in the Kid Lit Universe.
