A Time to Speak and a Time to Listen

March 22, 2013


I am proud to announce the publication of this lovely anthology of 100 poems – classic and modern – some published for the very first time in this book – with a foreword by Wendy Cope.

“A Time to Speak has something for everyone – and the universal relevance of the topics covered gives it a timeless cross-cultural appeal.” Published by Schofield and Sims, 2013.

ATimetoSpeak_Covers The anthology is available in both hardback and paperback and is accompanied by a 142-page Teacher’s Guide – a comprehensive handbook that supports you as you help children to appreciate the poems in A Time to Speak. This treasure trove resource provides concise teaching notes to introduce each individual poem to your class, guidance on reading aloud, flexible assembly plans and photocopy masters.

Meanwhile, you can see and hear Celia performing her poem Lion (from page 64 of the anthology: ‘A time to keep’) if you click on the link on the Video Poems page of this website.
