Australian Children’s Poetry is a new site that has just been launched. Founded by author Dianne (Di) Bates, this site is dedicated to showcasing contemporary Australian children’s poets and their work. Di’s aim is to put Australian children’s poetry on every map there is. Please help spread the word.
It would be great if you would grab a cuppa and browse around the site. You’ll find a blog, articles, competitions, poetry news, an A-Z of Australian poets (which will be continually updated), and much much more.
Site link: – http://australianchildrenspoetry.com.au
To view the poets that are listed so far, please click on:

So, to keep up-to-date with what is happening, please follow the blog to support the talent we have in Australia. You will see the follow link on the R.H. side of the site.
