Calling All Poets and Illustrators!

Calling all poets and illustrators!
We want you to collaborate to make poetry and illustrations reflecting this strange time!

Poets: We want you to write a poem based on the theme: HOME - it can be absolutely ANYTHING related to home! It can be any type of poem: haiku, lyrical, sonnet, blank verse... Send these poems to Ms Bouchaib ( and Ms Cowley ( by Sunday12th April.

Illustrators: We need you to illustrate the poems! You can use any type of media you like - hand drawn, digital, collage, painting, animated... Please email Ms Bouchaib and Ms Cowley if you'd like to participate. We will send you one of the poems on Sunday 12th. Your job is to illustrate the poem and email in your results by Monday 20th April.

If you want to illustrate your own poem, that's fine too! Just let us know when you email in. You don't have to write AND illustrate - it's ok to do one or the other!

Need inspiration? Google 'illustrated poems' and get creative!

The best collaborations will be published after the Easter holiday.

Take care and stay safe
Ms Cowley & Ms Bouchaib
