Poetry Box bubble time: A postcard poem is a ride in the car at Easter! Give it a go …



Te Henga Bethells Beach : my local!


If I wasn’t in my bubble, I would definitely doing the short drive in the car to Te Henga Bethells Beach. We can’t go for our early morning run there until our bubbles open.

But what I can do is a write a poem postcard from somewhere I would love to visit this holiday weekend.

That means it is FREE! I can go anywhere in a poem postcard.

So I am inviting you to write a draw a poem postcard and send it to me so I can post some on Poetry Box! I can go anywhere when I read a poem and I write a poem!


you can go anywhere: any time any place!


I love finding things to do that make me HAPPY IN MY BUBBLE!

I will have a few copies of Groovy Fish to give to children once our bubbles open.


PLUS I am giving at least one Groovy Fish to someone who picks a favourite Summer Postcard Poem from my March challenge. See here


send to  paulajoygreen@gmail.com

please include your name age and name of school

don’t forget to put POEM POSTCARD challenge in subject line so I don’t miss it

don’t put your surname on drawings or paintings or collages (Poetry Box policy)


There is no deadline while we are living in our bubbles! Every Friday I will post some work by children. I will always answer your emails but not straightaway. If I haven’t replied after 3 or 4 days nudge me as I may have missed it.
