Poetry: Write It, Publish It

Wendi Silvano, Author
Nancy Bo Flood, Author and Educator

Poetry can delight, tickle the funny bone, warm your heart or break it. Poetry can teach—math, mushrooms, black holes or metaphors. The text of many popular picture books and novels is poetry. In this workshop, two authors who write poetry for a variety of purposes, will share examples of poetic children’s books that erase the boundaries between STEM, STEAM, fiction, memoir, and the traditional forms of anthologies and collections.

Nancy Bo Flood and Wendi Silvano will discuss techniques helpful when writing poetry—and then we will try several. A list of publishers publishing poetry will be shared. (All levels)
