Designed as an enrichment activity for 3rd through 6th grade classrooms, The Lyric Poets Project is a unique opportunity for students to participate in the editing process of a published children's novel.
How it works:
- Students (i.e. Lyric Poets) will read read a finished portion of the story and will be introduced to the characters, settings, and plot. Part One of Foreverafter: An Odd Adventure, subtitled "Crash Landers" is complete and will soon be available on Amazon and all major book sellers. Digital copies will be provided to classrooms at no cost.
- They will then read the in-work manuscripts for the second and third parts to this 3-part novel and provide inputs into the editing process. Teachers will be able to choose from a selection of exercises that match the level of their students. Ideally, this will be done as a collaboration utilizing the Google Classroom environment of each school, but can also be done individually.
- Inputs from Lyric Poets will be incorporated by our editors as the book moves through the publication process.
- Participating classrooms will receive a copy of the published book when complete, allowing Lyric Poets see how their hard work helped turn a good story into a great book. Poets who made significant inputs into the final novel may even be credited in the book!
