About Me

Hi. Thank you for visiting my website of ‘Poems For Kids’.

The site contains reviews, upcoming events, explanations of different poetic forms, and plenty of poems for kids.

My name is George and I am a UK children’s poet based in Hemel Hempstead.

George Stanworth_Pic_Poemsforkids

I have a degree in English Literature and have been writing poems for the last 30 years.

I have self-published a number of children’s poetry books, including ‘Moo-Moo The Doodle’, ‘Don’t Trick Or Treat A Lion’ and ‘Summer Poems For Children’.

My writing is inspired by my 7 year old daughter and 11 year-old step-son, and they have also contributed poems to some of my published books.

I have run a number of poetry workshops in schools, libraries and Scout Groups, and I am currently developing some more creative packages to pitch in the near future.

I also have another website called http://www.georgestanworth.co.uk which contains satirical poems pitched at adults, as well as some of the children’s poems you will find on this site.

If you would like to message me then please use the contact form below.

Best wishes,

George Stanworth
