Welcome to Reimagine Your Poem as a Picture Book. We’ll spend this hour and fifteen minutes together selecting only the most precious words from you poem for a picture book. Then, if you are an artist, you will thumbnail sketches thumbnails to accompany those words. If you are not an artist, by “sketching” thumbnail pages, you may select more precise words for your picture book. 

You’ll come with your poem or a poem you love, or there are poems in the packet you hold.

I’ll read my poem that was the basis of Stella and the Bubble Man. Then we’ll read the picture book: text by me and art by Anait Semirdzhyan.
