About Sylvia

I'm a professor of literature for children and young adults at Texas Woman's University in Denton, TX (near Dallas). I enjoy nearly every genre, age level, and type of (children's) book, but have a particular passion for poetry-- thus my blog. I'm also a mom with two big kids (in college), married for 30+ years to a very supportive guy. Besides books, I love to travel (a LOT) and go to the movies... More

Hello Dr. Vardell,
I took a couple of courses with you at UTA several years ago. The courses were online so I never had the pleasure of meeting you in person. I really learned a lot from you and, of course, use that knowledge in my everyday work in the education field - so Thank you! I am anxi... more

Hi Sylvia! I hope you're having a relaxing summer. I am hoping that you might have some time to give me feedback on my poetry? I've had friends and family read them, but would like an expert opinion. I read them on this site, but I could also send you a written copy.
It would be very, very mu... more

Hi Sylvia,
If you have some time, I would really appreciate feedback on my poems, from someone who knows children's literature and poetry as you do. Comments or constructive criticism :)

Wonderful blog!

How nice to see that there's a children's literature program in Denton. I used to teach at what is now University of North Texas. Looks like you commute!
Also, I just read your blog entry about the poetry book by Mado translated by the Empress. Lovely.
