Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 059541074X, Paperback)After reading and enjoying poetry, many of us become “wanna-be poets” wanting to develop our own skills and style by learning from experiences of others. The goal is to write our own poems in readable, entertaining form. This simple, practical, handy guide provides the background and essentials you need for writing your poems.
In Part One, “Poetry Writing For Wanna-be’s”, you’ll learn about various poetry forms from traditional to free verse. You’ll read about poetry and poets and use valuable reference lists of poetry forms and terms. You’ll learn how to critique a poem and discover more about public poetry readings and getting published. And you’ll be able to begin writing your poems right away, with confidence that you know the principles involved.
In Part Two, “Poems Are Such Funny Stuff”, you’ll enjoy and learn from the author’s chapbook of 30 of his light verse poems. They include a variety of themes and structures, some poems with rhyme and meter, some in free verse, ranging from humor and whimsy to deeper thought addressing topics of today, and supplementing other examples in the text. Poetry offers an enjoyable experience, especially in its creation. Have fun!
