Description: From the nuts and bolts of craft to the sources of inspiration, this book is for anyone who wants to write poetry -- and do it well.

In this fortuitous collaboration, two spirited poets, themselves teachers of poetry, offer guidance to aspiring beginners and those who have already published. Brief essays on the elements of poetry, technique, and suggested subjects for writing are each followed by distinctive writing exercises. ("Compare an actual family photograph with one that was never taken, but might have been".) The ups and downs of the writing life -- including the inevitable visitations of self-doubt and writer's block -- are here, along with tips about getting published. A special section contains twenty-minute writing exercises, and valuable appendixes cover further reading and marketing advice. On your own, this book can be your "teacher", while groups, in or out of the classroom, can profit from sharing weekly assignments.

Numerous examples of contemporary poetry, chosen for relevance and freshness, illustrate salient points and stimulate the imagination. By calling on their own experience and focusing on living American writers for their models, the authors introduce you to poetry as it is right now.
