Workshops for Book week

Question:   "What do you do when people recognise you down the street?' asked a boy in Year Two.

Ha!  That made me laugh.  I don't think a children's poet will ever be that recognisable, but its wonderful to be asked that question and to enjoy a bit of celebrity status- well for a short time.

I took a week of workshops through from prep to year 4, covering two word poems on transport, to conversation poems and incident starters.

Its also wonderful to see the classes literally dive into poetry and perform poetic somersaults with such enthusiasm.

Thanks to Lisa for making me so welcome.
