Ive always had an interest in poetry, or more to the point, children’s rhymes. I have always had an ability to come up with rhymes on the spot, generally about surreal and odd things. My idols are Spike Milligan and Roald Dahl, would you believe. My earliest memories of writing were year 6 at school, so i was around age 10, i had special privilages and was able to leave a lesson at any point if i had an ‘idea’ so i could jot it down in my poem book. I think i may have abused this freedom a little ;)

Im trying to expand on my skills by trying different approaches to writing, im trying to brainstorm, introduce themes and morals etc, as well as just going with the flow which is what tends to work for me best, incidently.

I was recommended this site by a friend who reminded me that there is nothing better than good, honest, unbiased criticism from strangers! So please tell me your thoughts and feel free to rip them to shreds!

My aim is to publish a series of poems in a children’s story book and/or a collection of silly rhymes. I am relying on feedback to guide me in the right direction and get me started!!

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITCISM REQUIRED PLEASE :)

Also, if there are any artists out there who want to get involved with the illustration, please email me! I love the idea of a collaboration (We can share the rejection that way) ;)
