This week, and for the next two weeks, I am hosting a Reading Festival on Poetry Box.
We are celebrating reading and we are celebrating books.
I will be posting word snapshots on reading by all kinds of readers.
There will be a number of competitions for children up to Year 8. I have spot prizes!
The school that participates with the most enthusiasm and inspires me the most will receive an original painting from my book Flamingo Bendalingo (Auckland University Press). I will give you three pages to choose from.
If you want to submit a word snapshot on what you loved about reading as a child send to firstname.lastname@example.org with a two sentence bio and a photo.
