165: Interview with RenÃ©e LaTulippe
Renée M. LaTulippe has poems published in many anthologies including School People (ed. Lee Bennett Hopkins), and National Geographic’s The Poetry of US and Book of Nature Poetry (both ed. J. Patrick Lewis) to name a few. Renée developed and teaches the online course The Lyrical Language Lab: Punching Up Prose with Poetry and blogs on children’s poetry at NoWaterRiver.com.
We talk about:
• What are common mistakes new writers make?
• How do you eliminate too much description but still give readers the flavor of your character and setting?
• Should all writers study poetry or just writers writing in rhyme?
• Renée’s favorite revision tips
