White Page Day

So yesterday was the first day of Teachers Write, and it was “White Page Day.” ┬áHere is my list poem for my WIP, entitled Out of the Shadows.


Out of the Shadows

My story is about a girl
named Izzy.

It’s a story about grief
and loss,
about family,
about love.

It’s a story about beliefs,
about staying strong,
about being yourself.

Yes, it’s a story about magic,
but more importantly,

it’s a story about belonging

and finding your “place”
and your “people.”

It’s a story about coming out –

out of the shadows.
