Item Name & Description: I can offer a poem written for (and about) a person of your choice in a fairy tale setting of your choice. Two copies of the poem will be printed as a broadside on special paper and signed by me. All I will need from the winner is a fairy tale (Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, what have you) and some facts about the person to be in the poem (name, physical stuff, background, likes, dislikes, etc). Poem and printed broadside will take about two weeks for delivery.

Biography: Jane Yolen is the author of over 350 books, many of them poetry. Her books, stories, and poems have won two Nebulas, a Caldecott, two Mythpoeic awards, two Christopher Medals, the Jewish Book Award, two Golden Kites, the Rhysling, a nomination for the Pushcart Prize and the National Book Award among many others. She is a World Fantasy Association Grand Master Award winner as well as a Science Fiction Poetry Association Grand Master. Six colleges and universities have given her honorary doctorates. Her award from the New England Science Fiction Assn set her good coat on fire!
