About Me and Kidlit.com

Kidlit.com is an ongoing project for the passionate community of people who read and write children’s literature. My name is Mary Kole. I was a literary agent for five years with the Andrea Brown Literary Agency and Movable Type Management. My book on writing children’s books is WRITING IRRESISTIBLE KIDLIT. I founded Good Story Company as an editorial, educational, and community resource for writers, and my freelance editing and consulting services are for writers of all skill levels!

If you are a conference organizer or looking to have me speak to your organization in person or via teleconferencing, please check out my teaching, speaking, and workshop testimonials here, and don’t hesitate to reach out.
