Tamsin Flynn – The Children’s Poet
Tamsin Flynn began writing for children in 2002.In 2004 she was published in the anthology Down to the sea againÂ edited by Tessa Duder and published by Harper Collins.
The story tells of one of her many crazy sailing adventures told from the point of view of a pirate and she should know as Tamsin has been sailing around the Hauraki Gulf since she was six. She has travelled to most corners of the world and in 2008 moved to Qatar to live for four years to experience life through the eyes of another culture.
Here she met UK poet and illustrator Chris White who not only inspired her in the performance of children’s poetry but also agreed to illustrate for her. She began performing her work in schools in Qatar. She continues to perform her own work here in New Zealand and by interacting and work shopping with the children aims to share the joy of the poetry.
Tamsin has work in A Treasury of NZ children’s poemsÂ edited by Paula Green and published by Random House and has completed over sixty performances in schools in Auckland.
She loves entertaining children with her funny narrative poems and is passionate that poetry be an interactive and engaging process for all.
