This is a brief update on the Magic Fish Dreaming Project.
Just letting you know the teacher/parent notes are nearly complete. You can view a sample over at the project blog.
Some brilliant supporters are sharing the blog and facebook links, or are planning to share the kickstarter link far and wide when we have lift off, including some lovely people from the area where the poetry is set.
Come and join us on the blog or at the facebook space so you can cheer us on when the campaign begins.

For the Kickstarter I am editing the video trailer script today and drafting the rewards and details page to see what other information I need to complete it. I’m reading notes from Mira and Jed my kickstarter mentors.
And on another note today is very cold for Brisbane, so I am all rugged up remembering warmer days in the tropics hoping they might help keep me warm.
Green Tree Frog – one of the many creatures mentioned in Magic Fish Dreaming
Magic Fish Dreaming enhances the study of the natural world, encourages the exploration of poetry techniques, inspires movement and acting and interests its readers in specific animals and habitat including, the beach, lagoons, rainforests and farms of North Queensland and Australia.
Its poems encourage readers to, explore concepts of size and discuss ecology and the theme of belonging to and caring for the land, community and friends. Most of all it’s full of poetry to inspire the imagination, creative thinking and the building of a relationship with the natural world.
This poem is about looking for things to inspire poems.
1. Have you read or had poems read you?
2. What is a poem?
3. How could you hunt for one?

Adore green tree frogs of any descript. This is shaping up to be one lovely project June. 🙂
Thanks so much Dimity 😉 Sure do miss seeing these lovely creatures.
We have some giants around our place June. They seem to survive the dry hanging out in the gutters. One regular, Freddo, kept reappearing year after year. They keep the geckos at bay, apparently.
You lucky thing! I will go frog hunting – maybe there are some other varieties around, who knows? Will need beanie, gloves, scarf and a new coat!

This project seems to be going ahead in leaps and bounds. I wish you every success with it.
Thanks Suzanne. A lot more admin work to go, but getting there!
Yes – the technological side of these projects is really hard.
But we slog through eh.
