READ-THRU GROUP is a private & exclusive Facebook group for requesting read-throughs of WIPS in prose, lyrical prose or rhyme. A read-through is a video or audio recording of a manuscript read aloud by members of this group only and shared solely between both the requesting author and the member responding to the request.

If you are interested in joining Read-Thru Group, please message myself, Jess Carroll, and provide me with the following:

  • Details about your involvement and contribution to the KidLit community
  • A referral from an existing member of this group or have a member from another reputable KidLit group vouch for you.
  • Should your Facebook page not clearly state that you are a children’s writer, please state that you are a children’s writer and provide me with a list of KidLit groups and/or organizations in which you are involved.
