Happy 2017! I hope your year is off to a wonderful start. The weekly prompts were so popular last year I decided to run them again so to kick off your creativity for the year, here’s #1. Keep in mind that you are writing a poem for children, so cast your mind back to how you thought and felt when you were young. Email your submissions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org as a Word or Text document attachment and add a line or two about your writing process.
Throughout this year, I’m also planning to run more interviews with poets on the site, and more guest posts about the craft of writing poetry for children. If you’d like to be featured as a Poet in the Spotlight or have writing advice to share, I’d love to hear from you. Don’t forget, too, poetry news and information is always welcome, and if you have any suggestions for improving this site, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
