2016-17 Lyric Poets Project:


by K.J. Quint

Audrey (she prefers Odd) lives in a perpetual state of boredom. She tries to keep busy with small jobs around town and by listening to stories of adventure from a boy in the travelling circus—her only friend Kite. But Odd has always had one thought in her head: I want to go on my own adventure.


Publisher Atthis Arts is teaming together with our Lyric Poets to help bring this exciting mid-grade adventure to life. We're looking for young readers to help K.J. Quint polish up the next chapters in the adventures of Kite and Odd.

Your 4th-6th grade student will:

  • Continue reading the adventures of Kite and Odd on their fantastical journey.
  • Read early drafts of the story, and provide input into the editing process.
  • Learn the steps to writing and releasing a published book.
  • Student editors whose inputs make the final cut will be credited in the published books!


It appears that Odd's wish finally comes true as a flying island appears over the town and whisks Audrey and Kite away to a
far-off place, into a forest of the magical Nightlands where mystic creatures and magical folk roam. It’s up to Audrey and Kite to learn how to master the strange workings of this new world in order to find their way home

Lyric Poets will read Crash Landers and get to know the characters, settings, and plot elements of the Foreverafter: An Odd Adventure story. Crash Landers was the focus of our Lyric Poets Project pilot in early 2016. Student edits helped bring this book to life, and we're excited to continue the adventure.

Part Two: Guardians

Odd's new powers cause havoc for Kite, and with the help of their new friends he must learn to be Odd's protector while she learns more about her strange abilities and missing father.

Lyric Poets will read and help edit this story during the Fall, 2016 semester.

Part Three: Run-away Runaways

It seems that there is more to the residents of this forest than first appeared. Betrayal turns the group against each other as secret plans are put into motion that may destroy the Nightlands, and the fractured group may not be able to stop them!

Lyric Poets will read and provide inputs to our editors during the Spring 2017 semester.
