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.
Animal rescue groups
One idea here is a thank you poem
The new growth happening in our forests
Hope in general
How hope is a reason to continue fighting and believe things will improve.
You may like to pick a particular area of Australia and research what has happened in that area to write your poetry.
Please send in poems this week to
