This week on Poetry Box: a poem-letter challenge, Gavin Bishop and the bird winner

Greetings poetry fans,

On Monday will tell you about the Holiday Poetry Bonanza and the Poem Letter challenge, on Tuesday  will post an interview with the wonderful Gavin Bishop, on Wednesday I will show you a gorgeous new book by Gecko Press, on Thursday I will post  my favourite bird poems and the winner, and on Friday I will give you a holiday challenge.

This is the last week of term so remember it is Holiday Poetry Bonanza time on Poetry Box during the holidays. I want to post at least one poem a day by children during the holidays, and I will post mini challenges. At the end of the holidays I will pick my favourite poem and the young writer will get a book prize.

Send to Include your name, age, year and name of school. You can include your teacher’s name and email.

Principals please share in newsletters:

During the holidays poet Paula Green will run a holiday programme on her blog NZ Poetry Shelf. She will publish mini challenges and wants to post poems by children every day. Her favourite poem will get a book prize.
