our snoozing cats are waiting for me to wake up Poetry Box!!
Dear young poetry fans
Goodness me summer is almost at end and my blog is still snoozing
which means I have been hard at work on my own writing and books.
My exciting news is my new collection of children’s poems will be out in July
with my own drawings. And I even did a painting for the cover.
Groovy Fish and other poems Ahoy! Press July 2019
I used the titles I collected on my hot spot tour of NZ for poems – so finally you will get to see what I wrote!
Meanwhile I am planning what to do on my blog this year.
What would you like to see?
I want to find ways to involve schools and classes as well as individual children who are passionate about poetry.
Teachers, parents, school librarians, children: Write me a letter and tell me what you want to see:
new poems by me
interviews with authors
reviews of NZ children’s books
reviews of poetry books from anywhere in the world
reviews of favourite poetry books
children doing reviews and interviews
favourite poems by other poets (I need to get permission so NZ is easier)
classes that do a cool poetry exercise
schools that do a cool poetry project
letters to children’s authors by children
interviews with school librarians
