POETRY RAT 2011 poetry for kids!

For me the free-to-download collection of 20 of your poems under the title POETRY2010 was the highlight of 2010. The success of POETRY2010 has spawned a new idea for 2011.

POETRY RAT will be a collection of original poetry for children. Submissions are now invited.

This time your identity will remain anonymous. All poems will appear under the pseudonym Petra.

The POETRY RAT link will appear in my A-Z LINKS >>>. Poems may be sent in the body of an email to gwilataondotat (email should contain the words 'poetry rat poem' in the subject line).

I shall aim to publish a new poem every 2 or 3 weeks; a collection of 25 poems by the end of the year.

If you are a new reader and you haven't visited POETRY2010 please have a look. It prints to 12 pages. It's a fine collection. The standard is high. I congratulate once again all those who made it possible.


  1. I've had a children's poem sitting on my desktop for months now. Just can't seem to get over the hump in the middle but if I ever finish it I'll try and keep you in mind.

  2. Jim, that's good of you. Happy Hogmanay and Och Aye! to you.

    I like New Year, it's probably the only remaining holiday that church and state don't control.

  3. Happy New Year to you too, Gwilym.

  4. Thank you Zaina, I made it through :)
