Carrie Heyes, Children's Poet
About Carrie


I have been writing children's poetry since 2001.
My favourite children's poet is Dennis Lee. 
I have three little boys.

I am vegetarian.
I have a teaching degree from Canada.

I grew up in a very small, rural town.

I am a minimalist.
And yes! Most of my poems are based on true stories from my childhood - and now my kids' too!
