Welcome to Poetry Roundabout!

Hello! I’m Liz Brownlee, National Poetry Day Ambassador! What’s on the poetry roundabout? There are quickie poetry writing ideas for children, teachers, parents and librarians, crafty poetry projects, all types of poems including funny poems, empathy poems, and of course, poem videos. Use the menus or search for them on the right. There are also interviews with poets, poetry book reviews and poetry competitions. Thank you so much to @mrs_darl teacher for the window to pop us in, and @chriswhitepoet for my little cartoon me and Lola! Welcome!


Poet, blogger 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. I give Zoom lessons on writing poetry for children. @Lizpoet

    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!
