We think our website is a great resource for children interested in writing poetry or who want to see poems by other children. This site (and our book) was nurtured out of Ian’s love for poetry and teaching, and Mike’s love for design and children’s illustration. This dynamic combination, we hope, gives us a great opportunity to provide a children’s learning resource which is both fun and entertaining. An example of our, and the children’s work can be seen on the ‘Your Poems’ and ‘Our Poems’ pages, and more about the ‘Poems, Beans and Chips!’ book can be found on ‘The Book’ page.
New books print run has arrived!
We are pleased to say that following unprecedented demand leading us to sell out of Poems, Beans and Chips! a new print run has now arrived and is available for sale on Amazon.
We have also been pleased to receive lots of poetry submissions from children – we will soon be short-listing the next two poems to illustrate and publish on the site. Thank you!
Emily Ross, aged 6, has written a lovely Christmas Poem called Christmastime which Mike has illustrated and is displayed here.
Other newly-submitted poems are The Fly by Beatrice Day and Brave Soldiers by Caitlyn Wright. Also a bullying poem called Invisible by Roisin Muirhead, and My Kenning Poem by Daisy Keeling. Take a moment to read what these talented young writers have sent through!
If you think you could write a good poem, why not submit it to us, we always look forward to receiving poems from our young audience and some, illustrated by Mike, are displayed on the ‘Your Poems’ page. Yours could be too! Go to our ‘Your Poems’ page to find out more.
