2008 Nominations

is what this category is all about. We’re seeking the best poetry
collection for kids or teens. Now, some of the poetry collections are
fully illustrated and have the size, shape & appearance of picture

When deciding if something belongs here, ask yourself "Is this a
collection of poems

  • A picture book that is written in rhyme belongs
    over in the picture book section, not here.
  • Poetry collections for
    older kids and teens belong here as well.
  • A novel written in free verse belongs with all the other novels for the appropriate age range.

Poetry collections can be
fiction or nonfiction; they can have a single author or be an anthology
that includes the work of many poets. Collections need not be the work
of a single
author, but may be an anthology.  The
poems can be in rhyme or not, and can be in any form, including no real
form at all (which is to
say, free verse is very welcome, as are shape poems).
