My name is Anna Eleanor Jordan (Formerly published under the name Anna J. Boll), and I write and illustrate for children.
My poems will appear in the anthology The Proper Way to Meet a Hedgehog And Other How-To Poems edited by Paul B. Janeczko and illustrated by Richard Jones. The book releases from Candlewick Press on March 12, 2019. I’m excited to be in a table of contents with other wonderful and well-known poets such as Margarita Engle, Nikki Grimes, Pat Mora, Kwame Alexander, Douglas Florian, Charles Ghigna and many others.
I’m also pleased to have poems published in these high-quality magazines!
I am also a veteran educator as comfortable with teaching K-12 as I am with teaching adults and higher ed students. I love to do programs about poetry, the picture book, creative writing, research, and the creative process.
I grew up in Washington, DC, spent over twenty years in Maine raising my children, and my fur-daughter, Lucy, and now I’m off on a new adventure to New York City.
I look forward to working with publishers to connect kids with great books through effective School Library Marketing. Connect with me on LinkedIn.
Enjoy the creative chaos:
…and much more.
Thanks so much for visiting.
