It Doesn’t Have to Rhyme

I’ve blogged before about the MA in Children’s Literature that I did at the University of Roehampton. Well, they have a fabulous conference coming up in conjunction with IBBY (International Board of Books for Young People) on the 12th November. Sadly I can’t go as Milo’s having a little birthday party that day with hopefully this cake, but there are places left so if any of you want to go, get booking. 

I’ve been in the past and these conferences are fantastic. This year’s topic is “It Doesn’t Have to Rhyme” with a focus on the question”Why does poetry matter?” begging a more fundamental question in “What is poetry?” which will hopefully be explored throughout the day.

Speakers on the day include Morag Styles, Michael Rosen, Jacqueline Wilson, Susan Bassnett and a panel of people involved with the publication and anthologising of poetry. See, sounds great!

Further information can be found here on the University website. Bookings close on the 4th November so quickly, quickly hurry along!
