Are you a children’s poet with a passion for sharing poetry and promoting Australian children’s poets and their work?
An enthusiastic volunteer is needed to take over the administration of this popular blog.
After working on Australian Children’s Poetry for two and a half years, I feel the time has come to step aside and hand over to someone new because I have a number of writing projects that will be demanding more of my attention over coming months. It’s been such an enjoyable experience being involved in the site and connecting with so many wonderful children’s poets. Your generosity in sharing your work with others for the Poem of the Day posts has been overwhelming and it’s always exciting to see what new poems have turned up in my in box in response to the weekly Poetry Prompts, which are fun to create.
Basically the administrator’s role involves receiving poems by email and posting the Poem of the Day to the blog, approving (or trashing spam) comments, updating the A-Z of Australian children’s poets as required and sharing information about competitions and articles about Australian children’s poetry.
