Leave a comment

Let in the Stars  Let in the Stars, a Poetry Anthology for Children.

This anthology is an exciting and beautifully illustrated selection from the poems submitted to the inaugural 2014 Manchester Writing for Children Prize. This competition was          set  up as part of the Manchester Children’s Book Festival, established by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and run by her team in the Manchester Writing School at Manchester Metropolitan University. The project supports Carol Ann Duffy’s claim that “poetry written for children must be taken seriously, must be cherished and must be made available”.

The book sold out at the Festival but is now available to buy online from both the Manchester Children’s Book Festival bookshop: and from Amazon:

There is also a Facebook page: to help promote interest in the project.
