The One Word to Terrify Them All (a guest post by K. A. Holt)
|A zombie novel written in Haiku? Yes please!|
|Here are some ya titles written in verse, with a fun poetry activity to do w/teens|
So please, for the sake of zombies and chupocabras and sonnets and free verse, and torn out pages everywhere, don’t freeze up when you see the word “poetry.” Don’t feel harrumphy when you see “novel in verse” on the cover of a book.
|Golden by Jessi Kirby comes out in 2013, based on Robert Frost, so very good|
|Coming in 2013, and so very brilliant. Great voice.|
K. A. Holt is the author of Brains for Lunch and Mike Stellar: Nerves of Steel? You can find out more about her, and her books, by visiting her webpage. It is set up like a comic book and epically cool.
