Children's Author Lori Degman Joins Rate Your Story!

Meet Lori Degman, our newest volunteer judge at Rate Your Story!

Lori was the first person to submit a story and receive a 1 (in fact, she got more than one 1) - our top rating here at Rate Your Story!  Here's more about her and her work:
Lori Degman is a master-rhymer!

Lori Degman is a picture book author and teacher of deaf and hard-of-hearing students.  Her first picture book, 1 Zany Zoo (Simon and Schuster, 2010), was the winner of the 2nd Annual Cheerios New Author Contest!  She writes mostly in rhyme, sometimes in prose, and always with humor.  “I love helping writers with their rhyming picture book stories," she said. "My professional critiques include comments on all aspects of the story, as well as a line-by-line review of both rhythm and rhyme.”  Learn more about Lori’s critique service on her website:
