This live Workshop event is available for members with full, extended, or time traveler admission levels.
Are you intrigued by all the novels in verse that are finding their way into the marketplace? Have you experimented with poetry or contemplated writing a novel in verse? In this workshop, we will explore differences between writing in verse and prose, look at a variety of middle grade and young adult mentor texts, and play with possibilities for using poetry in your own work.
Megan E. Freeman attended an elementary school where poets visited her classroom every week to teach poetry and she has been a writer ever since. She writes middle grade and young adult fiction, and her debut middle grade novel-in-verse Alone is available starting January 2021 from Simon & Schuster/Aladdin. Megan is also a Pushcart Prize-nominated poet and her poetry chapbook, Lessons on Sleeping Alone, was published by Liquid Light Press. An award-winning teacher with decades of classroom experience, Megan is nationally recognized for her work leading workshops and speaking to audiences across the country. Megan used to live in northeast Los Angeles, central Ohio, northern Norway, and on Caribbean cruise ships. Now she lives in northern Colorado. Learn more at MeganEFreeman.com.
