I am a children's poet who writes for every single age group from preschool upwards. I know that buying books for your classroom is expensive at the moment. I have written about 850-900 poems and I'm putting them into un-illustrated E-books. I am going to make it possible for a teacher to get the children in their classroom to choose their favourite poems and illustrate them, and then to get the books either sold as E-books or print on demand, to both provide their classroom with lovely books that the children and their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and everyone will want to buy because the children have contributed to the book. It would be a book that would never end up in the charity shop. I own the copyright on every one of my poems, unlike most poets, so I am free to do this. All I would ask in return is 10% of the sales so that I can pay young artists to work on other books and perhaps pay animators to get some films done. It is a way of bringing in income for people who really need help in this recession. You could only do this through your school, or charity, with a legal agreement with me, but it is something I think would be great. You could do it again the next year, if it works well, with other poems. It is a good way of getting poetry into homes again because many publishers won't touch poetry. I'd love to hear what you think about this - and perhaps you may have some other ideas. If you want to see my website Google JOSIE'S POEMS. It is a low-cost subscription website at the moment with about 850 poems on it, but next week it will be entirely free but the number of poems will have to be brought down. There are too many there. You get mind-blown when you see the indexes. I look forward to hearing your ideas about this very unusual project.
