Welcome to Australian Children’s Poetry website.

This site is dedicated to showcasing contemporary Australian children’s poets and their work. Most poets have included their contact details if you wish to engage them to present at your school or writers’ festival.

We do not publish collections or anthologies; nor do we offer an assessment or editing service. However, the site presents a Poem of the Day; so, if you are an Australian poet and would like to submit your children’s poem for consideration, you are more than welcome to do so.

We are happy to accept information about children’s poetry activities and events in Australia and overseas, poetry links, competitions, interviews with poets or publishers, and relevant articles.

Australian Children’s Poetry would like to acknowledge and thank the Illawarra South-Coast CBCA

http://nsw.cbca.org.au/pages/illawarrasouthcoast.html  for its generous donation towards making this blog site a reality. Other individuals have also very generously given donations for which I thank them: they are Anne Bell, Dianne Cook, Margaret Pearce, Jennifer Erlanger, Stephen Whiteside, Pat Simmons, Teena Raffa-Mulligan, Janeen Brian, Wendy Blaxland, Dianne Ellis and Katherine Gallagher.
