Dear poetry fans,

This is my last post for 2014!

I have had a fabulous year, a busy year, a year of glowing highlights.

So thanks to everyone who contributed to Poetry Box, who shared my posts, who read the posts and who sparked children to write and read poems.

This blog would not work without you.

Thanks to everyone who made my poetry tour such a rip-roaring success. Teachers you have worked so hard to help me, along with booksellers, librarians and my publishers. And thanks to Creative New Zealand for making it all possible.

Over summer, I will think about how Poetry Box will work next year. I need more time for some exciting big secret writing projects, some little secret writing projects and just to write whatever comes to me. So while I hope to keep Poetry Box going it will be a bit different as this year was a huge amount of work for me.

The good news is it is something I love to do and I would be very sad not to keep doing it. I have loved reading your poems, especially.

So a very happy summer holidays to you all. I do hope you get time to follow your poetry spark and write a poem or two. Keep a little notebook. Look back through my blog for inspiration. Use the world for inspiration. Try writing in ways you have never tried out before. Have fun with words!

Keep safe!

Love to all,

    When you look back through the photos, you have certainly had an amazing year inspiring young poets around the country! We have certainly been glad to have been a part of Poetry Box this year, and we are very happy for the blog to be a bit quiet next year if it means there will be some more wonderful works from Paula Green coming! For all that you do – THANK YOU. Best wishes for the festive season and the summer that follows, from Robyn, Glen, Gemma and Daniel Lovewell

      Dear Lovewell family, thank you for your kind words. It has been such a treat and privilege to do something like this. Poetry Box will active be active but in a slightly different way so I have more time. I was sitting at breakfast this morning thinking about possibilities. It is such an interactive blog it is tricky to figure out. Best wishes for the Christmas and the summer months too.
