From the author of How to Read a Poem and How to Write a Poem, comes a truly delightful book on how to write poetry in form. Tania Runyan's previous How to Write a Poem focused on free verse; the powerful techniques of poetry writing (image, sound, line breaks, surprising insights, risk-taking, revision strategies); and getting your poems published. This companion book opens up the world of classic poetry forms and new poetry forms, to help poets grow and explore. How to Write a Form Poem is an instructive book for form-poetry beginners. It's an inspiring, useful reference (and a fun read) for experienced poets of all levels. It's also a helpful tool for teachers who want an accessible, informative, inspiring text for students-with plenty of tips for how to actually approach writing the forms, lots of sample poems to illustrate the forms + intriguing poetry prompts! With How to Write a Form Poem by your side, you'll be instructed and inspired with 10 fabulous forms-sonnets, sestinas, haiku, villanelles, pantoums, ghazals, rondeaux, odes, acrostics (the real kind), found poems + surprising variations on classic forms (triolet, anyone?), to challenge you when you're ready to go the extra mile. You'll also be entertained by Runyan's own travel stories that she uses to explain and explore the various forms-the effect of which is to bring form poetry down to earth (and onto your own poetry writing map). Carnival, lighthouse, monument, state park...she uses them all to help explain the exciting world of how to write poems in form. Her travels also result in a collection of satisfying form poems, some of which you'll find featured in the book as samples. Other sample poems include works from both popular and emerging poets from many walks of life and geographies. In your anthology travels here, you'll meet (or get reacquainted with) Conor O'Callaghan, Richard Pierce, Ashley M. Jones, William Shakespeare, John Keats, Claude McKay, Tom Hunley, Elizabeth Bishop, Celia Lisset Alvarez, Elise Paschen, Frank O'Hara, Victoria Chang, Joshua Gage, Katie Manning, Seth Haines, Natasha Trethewey, David K.

Want to improve your craft? Then this is a good place to start. Poems do not simply happen, they are made - Poetry: Tools & Techniques shows how to make them. In plain, straight-forward language, this practical guide introduces the devices and techniques used by successful poets. Poetry: Tools & Techniques is a starting point for writers to find their own direction rather than a definitive textbook on how to write in the proper and approved manner. Poetry: Tools & Techniques investigates the structure of language and how it conveys meaning - and from that shows how to create and use a poetic, a philosophy of language, to shape and inform your writing. The book encourages poets to explore the limits of language and discover how to make language speak beyond itself - to make language say what it was not designed to say, to express the inexpressible. Poetry: Tools & Techniques provides an introduction to the basic elements of poetry - metaphor, imagery, punctuation, syntax, rhythm, etc. - the actual techniques and devices that go into making a poem, right down to the nuts and bolts structural parts of language - the conjunctions, prepositions, articles, etc. - and shows how they affect poetic language. Whether you are a beginning poet or an experienced writer, Poetry: Tools & Techniques will help you improve your craft.

Compiled from the workshop assignments of Ottone M. Riccio, a master teacher, Unlocking the Poem is a teaching tool, a stimulus to individual creative expression, and a compendium of outstanding contemporary poetry written from these very assignments--all in all, a book that deserves a place on every poet's shelf, according to the esteemed poet X.J. Kennedy. Unlike many how to write poetry texts, Unlocking the Poem teaches by doing. Its assignments offer writers, new and experienced, the chance to try new things, to practice their craft--and to produce their own original, polished poems in the process. Unlocking the Poem offers 450 proven assignments--more than any other work available--based on poetic form, subject matter, the use of specific words or lines, time for writing, and so forth. The collection contains assignments to elicit autobiographical experience, moods, and the realms of fact and fantasy. These assignments provide stimuli to get the creative process underway, with subjects ranging from the everyday to the surreal, from people to the natural world, from the works of man to history to investigating language. Unlocking the Poem is organized so that related material comes together, readily findable. Turn to a given section villanelles, for example, or surreal experience or browse until something strikes your interest. Assignments are adaptable to beginners and to advanced writers; there's plenty in here for every poet. Unlocking the Poem belongs in the library of every writing student who wants to be a poet, and every poet who wants to write more and better poems.

Do you want to write a poem? This book will show you ‘how to grow your own poem’ . . . Kate Clanchy has been teaching people to write poetry for more than twenty years. Some were old, some were young; some were fluent English speakers, some were not. None of them were confident to start with, but a surprising number went to win prizes and every one finished up with a poem they were proud of, a poem that only they could have written – their own poem. Kate’s big secret is a simple one: is to share other poems. She believes poetry is like singing or dancing and the best way to learn is to follow someone else. In this book, Kate shares the poems she has found provoke the richest responses, the exercises that help to shape those responses into new poems, and the advice that most often helps new writers build their own writing practice. If you have never written a poem before, this book will get you started. If you have written poems before, this book will help you to write more fluently and confidently, more as yourself. This book not like other creative writing books. It doesn’t ask you to set out on your own, but to join in. Your invitation is inside.
