Welcome to #MGiechat

If you love reading or writing middle grade books (books for a readership aged 8-12), and you’re also a twitter user, then join our monthly twitter chat – #MGiechat.

This all came about because I recently realised that there were no Ireland-based chats on twitter about middle grade books, and the wonderful Michelle Moloney King (of #YAie brilliance) pointed out that I should start one. So, consider the gap filled! Do come along and say hi. We’re a friendly bunch.

The next #MGiechat session and topic is TBC
