ABOUT ELISABETH NORTON

  • My poetry for young readers has appeared in several anthologies. I’ve written two picture books, several scripts, and a wide range of fiction, nonfiction, and educational curriculum for English Language Learners (ELL) for publishers in Korea and China, as well as general curriculum for online educational platforms.


    I am an active participant in the Poetry Friday community through my blog, and have covered international aspects of children’s publishing for Cynsations. I served as the Regional Advisor for the Swiss region of SCBWI for 7.5 years, and now serve as the Assistant International Advisor (Outreach). Originally from the US, I live in Switzerland where I teach English as a Foreign Language at a Swiss technical school.
