So You Want To Be a Poet?
Shobha Tharoor Srinivasan is a California-based children's author and professional Voice Over Talent, poet, and translator who came to this second career from the non-profit arena where she spent two decades using her words to bring funds to disability initiatives. Her latest book published by Clearfork Publishing, How Many Lines in a Limerick? PoeticForms and Literary Terms for Kids of All Ages is an illustrated poetry reader that uniquely mixes "how-to" poems that teach about poetic forms (like sonnets, villanelles, and haikus) with examples of those forms. PineReads Review gave the book a warm reception with a glowing review and an interview with the author. Her last book, Indi-Alphabet, published by Mango and Marigold Press takes readers around India and provides geography in its maps, history in the fun facts on each page, and poetry in the descriptions of places in the subcontinent. Shobha is also the published author of five children’s books in India (with Mango/DC Books and Tulika). Shobha's voice has been used in documentaries, educational and journalistic initiatives and audio books, both in India and the United States, and her essays and stories have appeared in publications including India Currents and Skipping Stones.
