The Joy of Poetry: How to Keep, Save & Make Your Life with Poems

The Joy of Poetry: How to Keep, Save & Make Your Life with Poems

Author:
Tags: Joy, Poetry

Part memoir, part humorous and poignant defense of poetry, this is a book that shows you what it is to live a life with poems at your side (and maybe in your Topo Chico®).

Megan Willome's story is one you won't want to put down; meanwhile, her uncanny ability to reveal the why's and how's of poetry keeps calling—to even the biggest poetry doubter. If you already enjoy poetry, her story and her wisdom and her ways will invite you to go deeper, with novel ideas on how to engage with poems.

A great title for retreats, poets & writers' groups, and book clubs. Or, if you're a teacher who has ever been asked, "Why poetry?", this book is the ready answer you've been needing.

Includes extras like how to keep a poetry journal (this is not just about putting poems in a journal!), how to be a poetry buddy, and how to take a poetry dare.
