Welcome to the kidlit forum. After searching for ages for a forum that indulged my passion for children's literature and not finding one (apart from the excellent children-literature-uk discussion list and the Rutgers list which are received via your personal email address) I decided to set one up myself. There are also the following UK websites:



I would highly recommend these for information and discussion on children's literature.

This forum is aimed at anyone with a personal, professional or academic interest in children's literature. I hope that with the help of its members, this forum will start and maintain vibrant and frequent discussions on various aspects of children's literature.

You are free to start or join a discussion on any topic relating to children's literature in any of the subtopics available. There is also an off topic section for any other discussions.

I am not much of a techie, but will do my best to sort out any technical problems you might have. Send me a private message if you are having any difficulties.

I hope that this forum will grow and be embraced by people from all over the world at all levels of interest. I may at some point select members to be moderators. Let me know if you're interested.

Just 4 house rules (so far):
1) Please be polite. Don't use any bad language and be helpful to those who are less experienced or knowledgeable than you are.

2) Please keep your posts relevant to the sections and try not to go off on a tangent

3) Please remember that this is a public forum. It can be accessed from outside the community so don't reveal any personal information or make any comments that you wouldn't make in public. There is a private messaging facility if you want to share any confidential information.

4) Don't under any circumstances be too shy to plug yourself if you have a new book coming out or an academic essay being published in a journal, newspaper, magazine or on a website. If you are appearing in a BBC4 documentary, a Radio 4 programme, or anywhere else in the broadcast or print media, let the whole community know!

Finally, this is a forum for you to express your views freely. All views expressed here are those of the individual members and not necessarily the administrator. I will not delete or censor any remarks unless they break any of the forum rules. You can edit or delete your own posts if you wish to change them.

Please enjoy this forum
