    This week on the podcast, Katie and Karin are discussing Owl's Nest Classics.

    What is an Owl's Nest Classic? They are reprints of classic works that capture the imagination of teen and middle grade readers. These are not rewritten, revised, or abridged works, but classic stories presented in full along with introductions, text notes, and discussion questions that are specially crafted to speak to young readers.

    Listen to hear why we are passionate about these annotated classics and our plans for future releases!

Summerchaser ,

Great writing & publishing insights

So fun to listen to people who have a love for kids, a passion for storytelling, and publishing experience address some of the main issues in the industry. Middle-grade and YA fiction are some of my favorite genres, but it’s hard to find titles with compelling, non-preachy, and age-appropriate content - and this podcast helped me see why. Even better, this is a great way to learn about true, beautiful, and good books to read! Discovering Owl’s Nest has been one of the highlights of my year.

Eager disciple ,

Very Enjoyable and informative

If you cold in a future podcast, please address the difference between query, synopsis and a blurb. They seem redundant at times, which makes them a bit confusing.
