New anthology: Poetry Zone A Celebration of 20 Years of Children’s Poetry

I’m thrilled to have a poem (‘Cookin’ Up a Universe’) in this fantastic collection celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Poetry Zone,  created by acclaimed children’s poet Roger Stevens as a website where children and teenagers can send their poems and see them published.

This sparkling anthology of over seventy poems includes new poems specially written by children, along with poems donated by some well-known children’s poets, including Brian Patten, John Agard, Brian Moses, Grace Nichols and Philip Ardagh. (And me – not so ‘well-known’ but quietly working on it!).

Dig deep folks. It’s a wonderful collection and what’s more, all of the royalties will go to a children’s charity.
