Poetry Prompt #8

Australian Children's Poetry

Forget rhyme and let the words flow freely in response to this week’s Poetry Prompt. This gorgeous creature makes itself at home in my garden and allows me to enjoy the occasional close encounter. It’s a youngster and I haven’t seen Mama about for a while. Are you inspired already? I hope so. Don’t forget, if you’ve missed one of our Monday prompts, you can catch up at any time. Send your submissions to as a Word document attachment and add a personal note about why or how you chose to write this particular poem. Happy writing! TeenaPrompt8

Pearlz Dreaming


We have a one off special: a soft toy cassowary hand crafted in the Cassowary Coast, a Magic Fish Dreaming book signed with a personal message to whomsoever is receiving it (or who they are giving it to) and pdf of learning activities.

This will only be running until tomorrow. $150 plus postage.

Please share with any of your friends who might especially want this delightful creature.

We also have some multiple book order options, where you can order, 1, 2 or even 3 books, due to requests from some of our fans keen to give this book to all their grandchildren (to have individual copies) or to friends.

We now only have $4100 to raise until we reach our project green light.

23 days to go!
