The Children's University

Hello, children, if you'd like

To send a poem in to Mike,

By following a simple rule

You'll get your passport stamped at school.


Underneath is what you need

To do. So just scroll down and read

What Mike has written and then send

Your poem in. That's it. The end.

So, this is what you need to do in April and May...

Write an open poem about. something that makes you happy.

(an open poem is one that doesn't rhyme or have any  meter)

Then send it in to Mike at

Mike will read your poem and give you some feedback.

Take Mike's email to your SCHOOL COORDINATOR and receive a STAMP in your PASSPORT.

If you want some tips on writing poetry, read some of Mike's POEMS and visit Mike's WRITING TOOLS page.

And remember - as long as you stick to the rule, there is no right or wrong way to write your poem. And your poem is as individual as you.
