ABOUT ELISABETH NORTON
Originally from the US, I now live in Switzerland where I am a CELTA-A certified teacher of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). My writing projects range from picture books through middle grade. I serve as the Regional Advisor for the Swiss Chapter of SCBWI, and have assisted with the SCBWI booth at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Since 2015 I have served as a reporter for the Cynsations website, with a focus on the international children’s book market.
My published work includes two picture books written for learners of English as a foreign language, which were written to specified word counts and reading levels, using key words and phrases. I have also written scripts adapting classic fairytales for video presentation to similar educational criteria, which included song lyrics.
