About Raven Howell (Hudson Valley, New York Author)
Growing up between the city of Philadelphia and the rural beautiful New Jersey shoreline, I’ve written poetry since childhood. My writing has taken me to many adventures – from a career at Atlantic Records in NYC as a songwriter, a greeting card verse writer, to a focus on children’s poetry.
Over the years I’ve had several children’s picture books published, and most recently authored, Shimmer/Songs of Night (Spork/2017), A Cheer for the Year (Spork/2018), A Star Full of Sky (Daffydowndilly/2017), and My Community (MacClarenCochrane Publishing/2018).
I write poetry and have artwork in a variety of magazines such as Highlights for Children, Ladybug, Hopscotch, Stinkwaves, Fun for Kidz, Cricket, Spider, Parents and Children Together, Hello Highlights, High Five, and The Friend Magazine. My work is included in anthologies, DVD’s and CD’s. I have received awards for poetry from the SCBWI and Poetry Soup, and enjoy presenting children’s writing workshops.
