Summary A Children’s Book of the Month selection, this was written with young poets in mind (age 11 and up) but it has much to offer adults and gifted elementary ages as well. I’ve included my own personal philosophy of writing poems, advice on writing technique and craft, fifty useful writing prompts and “jump starts,” memorization and presentation tips, the “Eight Habits of Highly Successful Poets,” example poems by classic and contemporary wordsmiths, a complete bibliography, a suggested reading list, publishing resources for young people, and more.
