Buy a Fabulous Poetry Anthology & support Children in Need

Post by Sharra » Fri Nov 12, 2010 5:46 pm

Hi everyone
If you like poetry (doh!) then you need this book! It's a collection of 131 poems on the theme of 'Childhood' in aid of Children in Need. There's poems from well-known writers such as Andrew Motion, Caroline Carver, Vicki Feaver, Abegail Morley (and loads of others) as well as a fair sprinkling new writers - including some people from here.
It's £10 - that's less than 10p a poem! And a huge chunk of that (all the profits) go to Children in Need and you can buy online at http://www.wordaid.org.uk where there's a list of contributors too.

I've bought a copy and I'm very impressed with the poems that are in it. Even not counting mine...
