Poetry Box May and June update

Dogs catching up at Bethells Beach

Dear young poetry fans

Thank you so much for all the sun moon poems you sent for the April challenge. That is now closed (too late to send more!) but I have a very busy fortnight coming up. I won’t be reading these and posting favourites until later on in May.

AND I won’t be able to post a May challenge – I will post the next challenge on June 1st.

Next week I am going to be away at Featherston Booktown festival. I am doing a fabulous poetry-playground workshop for children on Saturday May 8th (1.30 – 3.30). There are still some places left, so if you live in the Wairarapa or Wellington and want to come and write poetry with me now is your chance (age 6 to 10). You can book a spot here.

I am sorry you have to wait a whole month to get your next challenge and to see the poems I pick this month. I need to make sure I don’t POP with too many things to do!

I do hope to post a few reviews of children’s books I have loved reading.
