Thank you for your "yes"!
Thank you for saying "yes" to helping women to read more and read well. Well-Read Mom makes it easy to lead a group.
We'll walk with you every step of the way from inviting the women, hosting an informational meeting, publicizing your group, helping the women get registered, and running a low-stress and meaningful meeting.
Take a look at our leader resources, and feel free to reach out to us at any time with questions.
Get started As a Leader
Register and Contact Us
When you register, you'll be able to identify yourself as a leader and designate your group as "open" or "closed" to new members of the public.
After you've formally registered, please notify us, and we will add you to our leader list. Then, your friends can select you as their leader when they register. This way, we won't contact your group members during the year to try to connect them with another group.
Access the Leader Materials
Review the following leader materials and free downloads at the bottom of the page. If you'd like printed copies to share, you can purchase a NEW LEADER STARTER PACK (coming soon!) in our Store.
Invite Friends and Publicize Your Group
These could be relatives, moms, neighbors, teachers, co-workers, etc. Women can be of any age and stage in life. We understand "motherhood" in the broadest sense as the generative capacity of all women.
We have a customizable flyer, brochures, and registration forms at the bottom of this page that you can use. Take a risk and share the invitation. Even a handful of women can make for a wonderful experience. We are better together.
We are sincerely grateful for our leaders and the unique role you are taking. We want to do our best to ensure that all leaders have what they need to be successful. Here's what we're asking of you:
- INVITE the women into this experience of friendship and organize the details of the meetings.
- CONNECT the women by helping them register with Well-Read Mom.
- CLEARLY PROPOSE the model of Well-Read Mom which invites women to explore the annual theme through monthly reading selections.
- FOLLOW the Well-Read Mom method: accompany, read, compare, and share by using our monthly audios and printed materials.
- FOSTER FRIENDSHIP among the women by facilitating the group in a way that encourages respectful and thoughtful dialogue.
The One Well-Read Mom Reading Rule
In Well-Read Mom we only have one rule. Don’t apologize if you don’t finish the reading. Our goal is to help women read more and read well.
That said, it’s hard to have a discussion if no one has read, so discuss group expectations with one another.
