It’s good to see you. Since 1998 The Poetry Zone has published around 20,000 poems by young people and had millions of visitors – children and teenagers, real live poets and other adults who want to check us out, especially teachers who use the Poetry Zone as a fun way of teaching poetry in their schools. Do spread the word!

Do enter our competition. Write an animal poem and you could win a copy of the wonderful Where Zebras Go. You can check out winning poems and the best entries of past competitions by clicking on “poems” and then scrolling down to “Competition Entries.”

NOTE TO SCHOOLS SENDING POEMS. I’m very happy for schools to send us poems. But I do edit all poems – in the same way that poems would be edited in a book. This does take time – and so I would ask schools to limit the number of poems sent. If a school sends, say, 30 poems – one from every class member – I may have to choose a selection to appear in the Poetry Zone. Schools may, however, send as many poems as they would like for competitions..

Poo Poo Poo! Rude poems can be very funny but be warned – if you send us poems about farts, bottoms or poo they won’t be appearing in the Poetry Zone. So please stop sending us rude poems. 

And do please remember that all the poems you send should be your own original work.

 

 

Competition!

Time Travel

by Iku aged 9

The time travel is here and we have to peer.
The time is my number and my pride.
The time is my side and my hide.

Magic Unicons

by Jemima Lyn Andrade aged 8

What’s that I see eating corn?
Is it a horse with one horn,
with magical powers,
grazing in the flowers,
dancing for hours and hours,
does it gallop and frolic?
It’s a unicorn!
