“Matt Goodfellow is a fresh voice on the children’s poetry scene. He values words, crafting the language and never patronises his readers. His writing is sensitive and powerful. Matt celebrates experience with a sharp eye, transforming the world under the microscope of poetic language.”

- Pie Corbett


“Matt is a children’s poetry enthusiast and is, in my opinion, one of the children’s poets who will carry the flag in future years. In a genre that is currently lacking in younger writers, Matt can make children smile with his word play, but he can also make them think and wonder.”

- Brian Moses


“There is a true stroke of originality and brightness about Matt’s work.”

- Wes Magee

- Rachel Jacques,Head Teacher, Bowker Vale Primary School, Manchester

- Y5 child, Altrincham CE Primary


“Matt’s performances and workshops were fantastic! His humour and warmth inspired boys and girls across both Key Stages. We look forward to his next visit!”

- Literacy Co-ordinator, The Willows Primary School, Wythenshawe

“Matt engaged the children brilliantly with his lively poetry and wit.  He is both entertaining and inspiring.  Children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 loved working with him and teachers were left buzzing with ideas about how to deliver poetry in exciting ways.”

- Angela Ridley, Headteacher, Mersey Drive Primary School, Bury

Matt’s infectious enthusiasm ran right through the school and inspired children and staff alike to read and perform poetry not only in the performances and workshops but beyond. Every single child went away with a smile on their face - we look forward to welcoming Matt back in the very near future
