Wordsong Poetry

Wordsong is the only children’s imprint in the United States specifically dedicated to poetry. We publish poetry collections for all ages in formats ranging from picture book to graphic novel to novels in verse. We prize freshness and originality—in both the poems we publish and in our approach to creating books. Words change the way we see the world, and nowhere is that truer than in poetry.
