To celebrate my new book Groovy Fish and Other Poems (The Cuba Press) arriving in the world I am doing two poetry events in Auckland and Wellington in the school holidays.

 

You can write poems with me

You can read poems

You can hear me read from my new book

I will give away two of my illustrations at each event

 

All the poems in Groovy Fish have titles given to me by children on my Hot Spot Poetry Tour of NZ in 2014!

For my second celebration I will post the titles from my book and get you to write new poems to go with them. Then I hope to post one poem per title at the end of JULY. Check out my next post for details. I will give away a few illustrations with this challenge too! Details tomorrow.
