The grade school scholar and former Long Island regional Spelling Bee champion turned Xlibris author published her first poetry book – Isabelle’s Muse: Poems of a Grade School Scholar last year and has since then garnered literary praises.
She was invited to read her award-winning poem at the Grand Champion ceremony to be officiated by Pulitzer Prize-winning Poet in Residence, Yusef Komunyakaa. The event is scheduled to be held at the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association in Huntington Station, New York, U.S. this year.
About the Xlibris book ‘Isabelle’s Muse’
Isabelle’s Muse is the brilliant poetry work of award-winning juvenile poet Isabelle Scott. This is a compilation of her work, from the third through seventh grades, offering all readers of any age, a look into the genius of a young mind who expresses her gifts through verse.
Equally enjoyable at any audience level – preschool, grade school, middle school, and high school, college, post graduate, and beyond! The book is available in Hard Cover, Paper Back, and eBook formats for distribution via all literary sources worldwide, i.e. wholesalers, bookstores, and online via electronic distributors and other e-retailers including Barnes & Noble.
The author specifically designed the illustrations sporadically depicted on the opposite page, gently hinting at the imagery conveyed by the poem, but allowing ample room for the reader to fill-in the gaps with their interpolated experience and imagination.
Poignant, one of a kind, Isabelle’s Muse is the excellent creative work of a young poet who welds her genius with words … A beautiful gift to share with the literary world and to inspire other young writers to celebrate their own unique ideas as well.
