A few weeks ago, Tiffany and I gave an SCBWI workshop called Meter Maids: Sparkling Rhyme, Every Time.
Based on the awesome feedback and interest we got from that event, we've decided to start a blog called, The Meter Maids. The blog will include all sorts of insider tips and tricks of how to write great rhymes, citing loads of examples, so you can see techniques in action.
In celebration of our launch, everyone who follows us and leaves a comment will be automatically entered to win a signed arc of Tiffany's debut picture book, THE MONSTER WHO LOST HIS MEAN!
The best way to become a good rhymer is to read GREAT rhyme! Tiffany is a master of techniques such as internal rhyme. Just take a look at her first stanza!
Monsters are a spooky bunch-
a scary, hairy group.
They run in packs, leave giant tracks,
and dine on eyeball soup.
