Poetry Bonanza Monday: Busy busy busy busy ….. ? Yes!

This week I am so busy I might POP! Which seems like the starting point for a DR Seussy kind of poem. Hmmm. Will have to squeeze that in.

I am doing Northland Skype sessions, a school visit and judging The Fourth Fabulous Poetry Competition as well as a few other things.

 

Two challenges for you this week:

 

Book Review challenge

I challenge you to write a review of a NZ book – any genre. Check out the reviews by Gemma I posted yesterday.

B   Or tell me about a poetry book that you love from any country , any time .

DEADLINE for your Book-Review Challenge: Friday August 14th.

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

PLEASE say it’s for the Book-review challenge. Put in the subject line of the email please.

A busy poem challenge
