Poetry Links

Here are some of my favourite Australian poetry websites.

Australian Children’s Poetry showcases contemporary Australian children’s poets and their poems. They publish a Poem of the Day, which you can subscribe to.

Alys Jackson is a poet and short story writer based in Adelaide, South Australia. Her website contains wonderful, funny poems for children, as well as short stories, and poems for adults.

Mike Lucas is a poet and children’s author. His website asks you to decide if you want Silly Mike or Serious Mike, but if you want to read his poems, you have to choose Silly!

Kathryn Apel is a children’s author and poet. Look at the ‘Whiskers of Poetry’ on her website to discover some different types of poetry.
