Christiana Doucette loves exploring history, STEM, imagery, and emotion in her writing. She has placed as a poetry finalist, had her verse set to music by an opera composer, and had that music featured on an NPR news station. Christiana honed her writing craft as an SCBWI mentee of verse novelist Joy McCullough. In spring 2022 she served as a poetry judge for all age categories in the San Diego Writer’s Festival Kid’s Write contest, and loves finding ways to encourage young poets in their craft. She has interviewed with Anna Mercier on the Basic Pitches podcast and recommended verse novels on Julie DenOuden's Kid Lit Six Youtube Channel. When not writing, she can be found renovating an inherited dollhouse, exploring upstate South Carolina with her kids, or playing the piano.
