Looking for Missouri poets

Hi everyone,

I need your help. I’m still searching for Missouri based children’s poets who have had at least one collection of their original poetry published by a traditional trade publisher. I want to include them in the poetry article I’m working on that will appear sometime in the winter.

So far I have Constance Levy, Peggy Archer, and Amy E. Sklansky, all from St. Louis area, plus myself in Springfield. Surely there is someone else. Kansas City? Four is a small number. If anyone knows of a poet I’ve overlooked, please let me know. I will appreciate it very much!
