In the past week I have become totally obessed with kids poetry. I am gonna try to work on writing some for fun and possibly publication. I normally write regular poetry for well anyone but its usually just like adult like about christian stuff and my life. Now I am thinking maybe childrens? I got a bunch of kids poetry books from the library. I want to look into some mags that publish kids poetry too. I always loved Shel Silverstein why not try to write like him? Or more serious? So anyone else write kids poetry? Or want to? Or even published anything? Any tips for a person new and looking for a good start! Thanx for replying! :))

When I was in high school taking a creative writing class I wrote a poem that I think will make a great children's book. Eventually, I want to publish it as one. I will have to make myself successful in another genre first. But I have not written any other children's poetry.
