Brian Klems, who manages WritersDigest.com and has his own Questions & Quandaries blog, alerted me to the following cool pieces available on the site:

  1. "On the Edge: Poetry for the Younger Set," by Kara Gebhart Uhl, asks, "Will the creation of a Children's Poet Laureate and the staying power of novels-in-verse allow room for new writers in the burgeoning market?" The article includes advice from the United States first Children's Poet Laureate, Jack Prelutsky, as well as Janet Schulman (editor-at-large of Random House Children's Books), Julie Larios (author of Yellow Elephant), Steven Malk (agent at Writers House), and many more.
  2. "Children's Poetry Markets," compiled by Alice Pope, lists nine book publishers that accept novels-in-verse book ideas.
  3. And since I just mentioned her--if you're interested in "poetry for the younger set," then I suggest you check out Alice Pope's CWIM blog on a regular basis at http://cwim.blogspot.com.
