STUDENTS Are you interested in using one of my poems for a classroom assignment? Please go right ahead. You don't need my permission for that. You do, however, need to make sure you include my name as the author. And if you have any other questions about the poem, please contact me. I'd enjoy hearing from you!
Oh, and one more thing: Please do not re-post any of my poems on another web site. Thanks you!
EDUCATORS You are welcome to use any of my poems for your classroom needs. You may photocopy them, enlarge them, illustrate them, or do just about anything else you would like with them. Just make sure to include my name as the author. Thank you! And if you do anything really fun or special with one of my poems such as decorate a bulletin board or a classroom door and you have access to a digital camera, I would be thrilled if you would take a picture and send me a copy.
Again, please do not re-post any of my poems on your web site. And if you have any other questions about using my poems, please feel free to contact me.
PUBLISHERS AND ANTHOLOGISTS Thank you for taking an interest in my poetry. Poems of mine have currently appeared in some twenty anthologies released by various publishing companies as well as in numerous children's magazines and text books. I would look forward to hearing from you if you are looking to put any of my poems to use or if you have an anthology project in the works. Feel free to contact me.
Peace and joy, Eric Ode
