Recommendation by Matt Goodfellow, children’s poet:


Liz Brownlee is, first and foremost, an outstanding poet.


Her body of work is beautifully crafted and she writes with a clarity and precision rare among her contemporaries. She is also a skilled and sensitive tutor of those who wish to write poetry for children. Her critical eye and honest, yet supportive feedback allows students to quickly and effectively target areas of their writing which need improvement.


The feedback and guidance which Liz gave me allowed me to transform my writing.


Since acting on her advice, my poems have been published in books and magazines around the world.
