Welcome to Poetry Roundabout!

Hello! I’m Liz Brownlee, National Poetry Ambassador, and I’ve set up Poetry Roundabout to be the go-to place to find anything and everything about poetry for young people. Here you will find interviews with the best children’s poets, poetry news, how to write poems, poems of course, and poetry book reviews… and more besides! For teachers, young people’s poets, and poets who are young people!

Teachers, Editors, Publishers, people who wish to employ a poet – at the top in the tabs you will find an A-Z of poets and their poems from the UK, US and round the world, and a tab for poets who do free 15 minute Skype visits.


Poet and owner of Lola the alert dog. Be the Change, Apes to Zebras, The Same Inside, Reaching the Stars, Animal Magic. I visit schools, libraries, literary festivals, and organise poetry events.

    1. Thank you! I’ve written a whole load of these shape poems, they are in Apes to Zebras. Sea stars are amazing – they have skin on the outside, and are hollow, and have skin all over their insides, too! So they are always aware of what the sea is doing… every little movement. They can also grow back any limb, and if you cut them into pieces, as long as there is a middle left on each part, each part will grow into a new sea star!
