lizbrownlee – poet

Poems, animal info, extraordinary women, my books!


Hidden in the A-Z of Children’s Poets there are FOUR poets who don’t exist – their names are the anagrams of real poets on the list, each of whom have written a false bio and a poem for their alter-ego! Guess all four and you stand a chance of winning Apes to Zebras, An A-Z of Shape Poems by Liz Brownlee, Sue Hardy-Dawson and Roger Stevens.

It’s now the end of the A-Z send and time to send your entries to¬†poetryfunfactory @ Include your name, the answers, email address and U.K. address. The competition closes on 12 May.

To read through the entries more easily you can access them at the tab at the top of the page at Poetry Roundabout, link here: A-Z List of Children’s Poets.

Judgement is final. The winner will be informed by email and the result posted here and on Poetry Roundabout.


  1. Congratulations on finishing the challenge! You started the same year I did, so this is your 7th, too. We’re getting pretty good at this… I liked the slant you put on it, going backward through the alphabet.

    Anyway, you produced quite a bit for me to go back thru and read a little more carefully (so many blogs, so little time). I know what I’ll be doing the next eleven months…


    • Oh, John, thank you so much. Congratulations to you, too. I’m having to backtrack, too. At the minute I’m catching up on a story at Jai’s writing retreat, it’s just so good. But I have so little time this year. I was quite a mammoth task I set myself.
