Description: "For a class, or to work up enthusiasm about writing - and not just poetry - one could hardly do better for young people than this fresh and inviting collection." - KIRKUS REVIEWS How do you write poetry? It's a question with as many answers as there are poets. Now, in this unprecedented volume, thirty-two internationally renowned poets provide words of wisdom and inspiring examples of their own work for new poets everywhere. Compiled by anthologist extraordinaire Paul B. Janeczko, a talented poet in his own right, this outstanding resource offers a fascinating spectrum of advice from those who know best - ranging from "break a few rules" to "read Shakespeare's sonnets in the bathroom" to "revise each poem at least thirty-two times." Not surprisingly, the most frequently made suggestion from these seasoned poets is simply to "read, read, read!" This rich volume - an ideal resource for classroom teachers and a beautiful gift for budding writers of all ages - offers the perfect opportunity to do just that.

|"Do you want to write a poem? Forget it... until you have rewritten it." - Lee Bennett Hopkins|
|"How to begin? How to get better? If you love poetry, that's a good start. If you have a favorite poet, maybe you could memorize a few poems by him/her, so you can carry them around whenever you need or want them. Certain poems - like favorite trees, or views or memories - become old friends over time." - Liz Rosenberg|
|"Nothing succeeds like failure. Revel in it. You may take a measure of pride if you can say, 'I failed three times today, and that was before lunch.'" - J. Patrick Lewis|
|"Most of all, I want a poem to say what I really felt or saw or heard - that is, to be true." - Lilian Moore|
