“I’m a poet and performer working in schools throughout New Zealand, and around the world. I’m a wholehearted ambassador for poetry, because poetry brings words and the world alive, in ways that only poetry can. Poetry has the power to make literacy exciting, enriching, and sensational fun.”
So goes the official blurb on the home page of my website and, more recently, my Facebook page. But the real magic happens when young faces, and eyes, and minds, and hearts, light up with the pure fun of taking part in a live, interactive poetry show. There is no experience quite like it!
