The Red Umbrella

Join me throughout November for the second annual Poetry Comics Month! I’ll be posting a new poetry comic daily and sharing the work of other great cartoonists who are making work in this unique art form.

You can create your own poetry comic and share it on social media with the tag #poetrycomicsmonth. I’ll share reader submissions later in the month. Read more about how to make poetry comics here.

And my upcoming book, POETRY COMICS, is now available for pre-order worldwide from your favorite bookstore or online. It will be published this spring by Chronicle Books. Pre-orders support authors by building early enthusiasm for their work and ensuring the book is in bookstores on its release date. I truly appreciate your support!

I hope you’re inspired to combine words and pictures to make some poetry comics of your own. I’m excited to see what you create.
