Author and Rhyme Doctor Patricia Toht is on call in April to help you take your rhyme to the next level.

Join us on Thursday, April 13, at 6:30 p.m. for a webinar with Patricia Toht titled “Let’s Get Rhyming!” Despite what some may insist, it’s not a crime to write in rhyme! But it does take effort to master your verse. Join author and Rhyme Doctor Patricia Toht as she shares her new releases, Together With You and Pick a Perfect Egg, along with other wonderful books in rhyme, and reveals key elements that make them shine. The price will be $12 for SCBWI members.

Patricia Toht is a picture book author and poet. She once owned a children’s bookstore before turning a love of books into a love of writing. She is the author of a poetry collection and numerous rhyming picture books.

Patricia is also one of the Rhyme Doctors, a trio of poets that consults with authors to perfect their rhyme in picture books and poetry collections.

Find her online at patriciatoht.com, on Twitter and Instagram, and at the Rhyme Doctors.
