Matt Goodfellow spent many years trying to be a rock star until he realised he was rubbish at music. He put the guitar down and became a primary school teacher, working in an East Manchester school for over 10 years. Matt is now a full-time poet with multiple poetry collections and anthologies - including Caterpillar Cake, Being Me, Poems for Eight Year Olds, Bright Bursts of Colour and Chicken on the Roof. He has worked with all sorts of different people including The Premier League and The National Literacy Trust, and he is proud to be a National Poetry Day Ambassador for the Forward Arts Foundation.
