Poetry Prompt 1 2020

Leave a comment

Good Morning and welcome to the 2020 Australian Children’s Poetry Prompts.

We have certainly had an eventful summer in Australia.

How about for the whole of February we write poetry that instills hope into children after the bushfire events. Many of them have witnessed horrible scenes on TV and media and it would be beneficial for them to see the good that has come out of what has been a destructive time.

For example: Here are three prompts. You may have other ideas as well which are welcomed.

Please send in poems this week to
