Verse Novels: What are they and how do I write them? 

Are you thinking about writing a novel in verse? Do you have a novel in verse but not sure if you are on track? Join, award winning, author Kari Anne Holt, in all things in verse. Kari Anne Holt will discuss what novels in verse are and why they are so important. She will show us how to build a story using poetic elements and dig into structure and pacing too. All with a Q&A at the end.

KA Holt has dedicated her writing career to making sure kids (and adults) understand that anyone can be the main character of a book, and everyone deserves to see themselves reflected on the page. From her award-winning middle grade novels-in-verse, Ben Bee and the Teacher Griefer, Redwood & Ponytail, Knockout, House Arrest, and Rhyme Schemer, to her prose novels From You to Me and Gnome-a-geddon, to her picture book, I Wonder, illustrated by Kenard Pak, KA Holt’s readers will discover main characters that struggle, celebrate, wonder and discover in ways both new and familiar.
