Hello!

Don’t forget I am on the hunt for children and classes  to interview NZ authors and children to write reviews of NZ books.

This week I will share some books I have enjoyed.

And here is a wee poem challenge for you.

 

Try writing a poem inspired by another poem, especially a poem by a NZ author.

1. You might borrow the title.

2. You might borrow the first line.

3. You might borrow the last line.

4. You might be inspired by a phrase.

5. You might be inspired by the subject of the poem.

6. Or the mood.

7. Or anything else.

8. After the title write: Inspired by and then the name of the poet and their title

for example: Inspired by James K Baxter’s ‘The Tree House’

9. Thanks to the very lovely Helen Parsons, I have a copy of James K Baxter’s poems for children to give to one young poet.

 

DEADLINE for your ‘Poem inspired by a Poem’ Challenge: Wednesday May 20th
