New York Media Works Launches Children’s Literature Portal KidLit TV
Publishing company and content provider fetes dedicated children’s literature YouTube channel and website
NEW YORK, November 10, 2014 – On Wednesday, November 12th, New York Media Works will host a launch party to debut their latest creative property. What started as a conversation between New York Media Works president Julie Gribble, and award-winning author and illustrator Mary Sullivan led to the creation of KidLit TV, a children’s literature portal connecting kid lit authors, illustrators, publishers, educators, librarians, and parents.
New York Media Works and Kid Lit TV founder Julie Gribble noticed there was a wealth of informational videos and children’s literature news that was scattered around the Internet. Gribble sought to connect authors, illustrators, publishing professionals, educators and parents under one umbrella with this information. KidLit TV is a one stop shop for anyone interested in children’s literature.
KidLit TV will feature curated videos and articles, and original content including a weekly web series; StoryMakers, a one of a kind kid lit talk show. Hosted by School Library Journal, and Huffington Post contributor Rocco Staino, StoryMakers will provide engaging interviews with notable kid lit creators, and catalysts. StoryMakers is produced by Gribble, an Emmy nominated veteran of the television industry.
The accompanying live stream of the launch event will be hosted by marketer, and writerpreneur Katie Davis. The hour long live stream starting at 7:00 PM EST will be broadcast via YouTube.
“KidLit TV is more than a website and YouTube channel, it is a community,” says Gribble. “Our aim is to inspire, educate, and entertain anyone who is a champion of children’s literature.” KidLit TV hosts a growing community of established and aspiring authors, and illustrators via their Facebook group.
