A poem-letter challenge: What do you think makes a good children’s poem? What do you like your poems to do? What are the best ingredients? What makes a poem sparkle and shine? Are there topics you especially love? Are there good flavours? What is one of your favourite poems you have read? What do you like about it?
Write me a letter and I will have a book prize for my favourite one. Use these questions to think about what you want to say. You don’t need to answer them all. Just write a letter telling me what you love about reading or writing poems.
I will keep this running for a few weeks and post them here and there. Your letter can be short or long.
Send to firstname.lastname@example.org Include your name, age, year and name of school, and name of teacher and their email if you like.
