Presenter of the Week
Jenny’s stories and poems for kids often appear in the School Magazine. According to Geoffrey McSkimming, her new book, The Loyalty of Chickens (Pitt Street Poetry) is ‘a beautiful volume . . . full of Jenny’s wry, moving, witty and splendid poems’. Her 2013 poetry book, The Duties of a Cat, received a Highly Recommended rating in Reading Time.
Jenny’s poetry workshops can help kids find metaphors and similes for paws and tails, or show how alliteration and assonance, rhyme and meter work in practice. She is happy to customise workshops for individual needs. She can also talk about what it was like to be a slave in 5th century BC Greece, or how the Pythia of Apollo prophesied at Delphi.
Jenny is based in NSW.
