Looking for someone with a creative streak to take an old British story-poem and re-write it to suit today's modern audience. The original story-poem is a folk tale for children. We need both a prose and poetry version of the story. Think Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstone. If this fits what you do daily, then write to us. We want to see:
1. some previous work in writing poetry
2. how long you have been writing
3. some examples of taking old stories and re-writing them
