Take a look at this free anthology of wonderful Messages poems – old and new – compiled for National Poetry Day 2016. The fourteen poets in this eBook – created by Macmillan Children’s Books with Forward Arts Foundation – were all National Poetry Ambassadors. We’re making a book of Freedom poems this year too.
Deborah Alma, Liz Brownlee, Paul Cookson, Sally Crabtree, Joseph Coelho, Jan Dean, Matt Goodfellow, Sophie Herxheimer, Rachel McCrum, Brian Moses, Michaela Morgan, Rachel Rooney, Joshua Seigal and Roger Stevens have each contributed a new poem and chosen an old favourite. The cover is by Harriet Russell.
