Introduction to Poetry–published!

A couple of years ago, I wrote a poem for my students. It was an introduction to poetry that I used when I started a poetry unit, and was a response to the groans and moans I got whenever I introduced a poetry unit. The poem has been a hit–I slide smoothly into it when the kids start complaining, and when they realise I’m speaking in verse, their whole attitude changes.

I hadn’t really planned on publishing it, but when I found the perfect fit, I couldn’t resist.

It has just been published in the literary journal Teach. Write.
