AMAZING #AtoZChallenge of Children’s Poets STARTS tomorrow! Find out about the COMPETITION!

Above is just a mini-glimpse of the fabulous children’s poets who will be showcased in this year’s #AtoZBlogChallenge on Poetry Roundabout and Liz Brownlee poet. Every day there will a new post of one to nine poets for that day’s letter of the alphabet. BUT – I am not going from A-Z! I am going from Z to A! Then at the end of the challenge, all my posts will read from A-Z.

After April finishes, the posts of British Poets and US and World Poets will be put A-Z in separate pages above the title on this blog. These lists will become permanent resources for poets and teachers and industry professionals and – anyone interested in children’s poetry!

There is a COMPETITION! For those in the UK, four of the poets in the list DO NOT EXIST! They are completely made up! Four real poets in the A-Z have made anagrams of their names and posted a false bio and other information and have written a special poem for their alter-ego. You have to work out which poets have an alter-ego! Get all four right and you stand a chance of winning a copy of Apes to Zebras, an A-Z of Shape Poems by me, Sue Hardy-Dawson and Roger Stevens; Animal Shape Poems for 9 to adult. A beautiful, glossy hardback.

You cannot enter until the A-Z has finished, because you need all the names of the poets to work out the answers. Unless you think you can guess because you know a lot of poets! The judges decision is final. You will be picked at random from all the entries. Please email your answers, with answers, name, email and home address, to poetryfunfactory @ gmail.com. Please follow poetry roundabout. You won’t miss a post, then! Follow me here on Twitter or Children’s Poetry Summit here on Twitter for more children’s poetry news – maybe some clues? Who knows. But share, share, share and spread the love! Thank you, see you on the challenge!
