Get Started in Children's Poetry with a Highlights Workshop + Retreat!
Perhaps you've heard of a not-so-little thing called "verse novels." Think Kwame Alexander, Margarita Engle, Nikki Grimes, Jason Reynolds, and so many more!
Or maybe you loved Amanda Gorman's inauguration poem.
Or perhaps you remember a beloved picture book from your own childhood (or from reading to children in your life) that was written in rhyming verse.
And maybe you've wondered: what's the big deal about poetry? Can I write poetry? If so, what's possible, and where might I fit in?
Join Charles Waters and myself in-person October 8-11 for "Poetry for Kids: A World of Publishing Possibilities." In addition to our individual work, together we've written a poetry collection, a narrative poetry picture book, a rhyming poetry picture book, a verse novel, and have curated two anthologies!
AND, this just in: Carol Hinz, Associate Publisher at Lerner Publishing for Millbrook Press and Carolrhoda Books, with whom we've worked on multiple projects, will also be joining us in person! Learn more here.

Hope to see you there! 💜
