Thursday Read-Throughs with Maryna Doughty

I love this idea so much.

Sarah Meade, Writer for Children

My friend and critique partner, Maryna Doughty, has begun a new blog series called Thursday Read-Throughs. This week I’m excited to join her!

Picture books are meant to be read aloud, so it’s important for authors to hear their work read aloud. A recording of a first-time read-through can give a writer insights into the flow of the story, as well as any spots new readers may stumble.

I’ve always loved reading aloud. When I taught elementary school for ten years, my favorite part of the day was shared reading. Now I read aloud to my own little ones multiple times a day, as well as reading the stories of my critique partners. 

Would YOU like a recording of your kid lit material (1000 words or less)? If so, please subscribe to Maryna’s blog here, subscribe to my blog, and retweet Maryna’s pinned tweet on Twitter
