Media Pitch Kit

A suggestion in the Jewish Kidlit Mavens forum on Facebook inspired the creation of a media pitch kit specifically geared towards Jewish literature for children and young adults. Publicists and authors can consult this kit to learn where to market new Judaic titles. Sections include News Media, Blogs & Podcasts, Awards & Lists, and Events. Created in Google Drive, this is a living document that will be updated as additional resources are discovered.  Find the Media Pitch Kit at
