Read Poetry and Be a Better Picture Book Writer
with Janet Wong
Pump up your picture books with poetry techniques!
Almost three decades ago, Janet Wong decided to study poetry with Myra Cohn Livingston to "sharpen her prose." In this session, Janet talks about the benefits of reading poetry and how simply becoming more aware of poetic tools (such as rhyme, repetition, rhythm, alliteration, assonance, consonance, onomatopoeia, personification, metaphor and simile) will strengthen your picture book writing. Grab your suitcase and join Janet on this poetic adventure!
