Celebrating poetry for all

« Back

We’re all embracing poetry this month with National Poetry Day on 3rdOctober and the release of some brilliant new poetry books. Take a look at our New books for ages 8-12 and you’ll find Midnight Feasts, an anthology chosen by A F Harrold and illustrated by Katy Riddell, and Poems from a Green and Blue Planet, a collection of new and classic poems from around the world. We also have competitions to win a copy of Poems from a Green and Blue Planet or a set of illustrations from Midnight Feasts.

Our Poems for Everyone reading list covers all ages, as does the collection of Riveting Rhymes that we put together for World Poetry Day in March. 

And if you want to pick up some tips on writing your own poetry, watch our Poetry Masterclass with Joseph Coelho – poet, playwright, performer and children’s author.
