James Carter (Hey Little Bug will be published in August) Janetta Otter-Barry, Caroline Holden (illustrator of Come Into This Poem) Tony Mitton (Come Into this Poem will be published in August) Rachel Rooney (The Language of Cat) and Roger McGough (Imaginary Menagerie, which he has also illustrated - and the book has already reprinted)

John Agard (not pictured) also performed a preview of poems from Goldilocks on CCTV which will be published in October.

The list's editor, Janetta Otter-Barry, said, "We have many wonderful children's poets in the UK whose voices are not being heard, other than in anthologies. Surprisingly, this also includes established poets. I want to give children the chance to experience the full range of a poet's work in an individual collection. My intention is to publish two books a season, pairing an established poet with a new name. I am very excited about my new venture, which will help to bring poetry back into children's lives."
