My Year @WorldKidLit



One of the most exciting opportunities I’ve had this year has been the chance to write more for the WorldKidLit blog. I’m grateful to the entire team for giving me a space to write about some great events I’ve attended, books I’ve read, and writers I’ve met either in real life or through WorldKidLit. I’ll also give a special shout out to Claire Storey – thanks for encouraging me and nudging me to write about lots of fun stuff, especially the books and events around Africa!


So, here’s an overview of my year @WorldKidLit.
