About Jan Dean

I work as a poet- in- schools.  In the dim and distant I wrote teenage fiction and I’ve written fiction and non-fiction for 8 -11 year-olds.   But that’s not who I am.  Not really.  I’m not a fictioneer who knocks off the odd poem, I’m a poet who occasionally writes fiction.  I’ve spent most of my life getting good at this stuff so I love going into schools and sharing what I’ve learned.  But at present this blog is about being a grown up and writing a poem a day for the month of April.  They’re not all good poems – how could I work at this rate and still be a conscientious editor? – but there are no total turkeys either.  I’m too vain to post turkeys…
