Poetry Challenge #2 Small Poems

I have just done a big email out to all NZ Intermediate schools to let them know about NZ Poetry Box and the Fabulous Poetry Competition for children.

So I have decided to extend the deadline for the small poem competition until Friday 15th March so some Year 7 and 8 students can enter.

I am challenging you to write an animal poem using no more than 15 words. Check out my poetry tip for this week. You might go on a juicy word hunt first then play around with the words you use.

Send your poems to paulajoygreen@gmail.com

The winning poet will get a copy of Flamingo Bendalingo thanks to Auckland Unversity Press.
