Silvia Tolisano (@langwitches) reveals a poetry project with a visual and audio layer that hopes to also connect students globally. It’s a matter of joining the wiki, reading the support material, creating poems, publishing them and giving feedback to others. http://langwitches.org/blog/2014/08/31/global-project-visualize-poetry-around-the-world/ (My feeling is this is aimed at high school students, but the prompt is a scaffolded form of “Where I’m From” poem which I have used with primary kids = achievable!)

Here’s a poetry writing (and illustrating) competition opened to young writers, if you’d like to pass it on. http://www.childwrites.com.au/Free-Stuff-Competition.html
