Poetry Writing (Hardback)

Fiona Sampson

-  

Written by a prize-winning poet and the editor of Poetry Review, this book takes the reader through the entire poetry writing process, all the while promoting individual creativity and expression. Writing Poetry starts with questions about what poetry is, what it means to the poet and why people write it. It goes on to consider rhythm, rhyme and repetition and explore different poetry forms. This book is also thoroughly practical; there are exercises at the end of every chapter, it contemplates the 'ideal reader' and finishes with advice on getting poetry published. Listings of poetry publishers, magazines, resources and festivals are also included. Whether you are a complete novice or an established writer, Writing Poetry will offer something new time and again; this beautifully written guide will inform, encourage and inspire.
