Book summary: Poetry Writing: The Expert Guide


For writers looking for a systematic approach to their craft, this guide provides exercises and practical information, building up to a complete method but also allowing real individual literary merit. Poetry Writing starts with questions about what poetry is, what it means to the poet, and why people write it. It goes on to consider rhythm, rhyme, and repetition, and explore different poetry forms. This book is also thoroughly practical; there are exercises at the end of every chapter, it contemplates the "idea reader," and finishes with advice on getting poetry published. Perfect for creative writing teachers and writing group members, this inspiring volume offers multiple motivational techniques, plenty of examples, and most of all, it reminds writers that poetry is a fascinating imaginative adventure.
