In February of 2008, some of us decided we wanted a writing group. Our plan was to encourage each other to write the important things of our life or just to share our stories and our musings. We have been doing this monthly since that time. The offerings in this book do not include everyone in our group or all of the writing that has gone on around laughter and joy and a few tears; but we offer a little glimpse into the joy we have been for each other to be encouraged and to be heard.

Marjorie Maddox knows poetry. If I had to pick one book to introduce students to the joy of writing poems, this would be it. Maddox creates a book full of original poems to show us the inside out of every kind of poem you could ever want to write. I dare you to read a page or two without reaching for your pen and composing a poem of your own. From alliteration to sonnets and the villanelle, Marjorie Maddox makes metaphors meaningful and memorable. -Charles Ghigna - FatherGoose(R) It is clear that Marjorie Maddox loves poetry and loves her audience. The poems of the book-"How to Write a Villanelle," "How to Touch a Poem," to name two-illustrate the topics. For instance, "How to Touch a Poem" starts with "Forget distance or that anemic wave / you save for mere acquaintances and great aunts." Sometimes people may not write poetry because they don't know how to approach it, and Maddox removes the barriers. If you have ever thought about writing poetry and needed concrete tips, this is the book for you. -Kim Bridgford, editor, Mezzo Cammin Inside Out ... combines original poetry with inviting activities to guide young people in writing poetry themselves. More than two dozen inventive poems present key concepts, elements, and forms of poetry, each ... accessible and engaging. For example, her poem, "Simile Explains Metaphor," cleverly uses the teen-speak of "like" to illustrate how similes and metaphors work in just six lines. Puns, paradoxes, and alliteration, as well as clerihews, acrostics, and sonnets are all presented in pithy poems that provide a laser focus on the poetic element being introduced. Then Maddox offers nine in-depth "insider exercises" grounded in the previous poems with helpful steps and fun challenges for young writers. It's a unique combination of playful poems about poetry and crackerjack exercises for aspiring writers. - Sylvia Vardell, author of Poetry Aloud Here! and co-editor of the Poetry Friday anthologies with Janet Wong

Learn how to create a "culture of poetry" that demonstrates the power of words and strengthens the language lives of children. Poetry Goes to School is a comprehensive resource for teachers who want to fill their classrooms with poetry. The authors have expanded the territory covered in their previous book, Mother Goose Goes to School. In this rich collection, they have gathered and classified a remarkable collection of poetry and teaching strategies into a meaningful, manageable program. The book is organized around eight inviting units: patterns, word play, nursery rhymes, ceremonies, images, voices, stories, and information. Each unit contains: a description of the genre; inviting lessons and tools for using them in classrooms; sample poems to motivate language discussion; ideas for exploring all forms of poetry with children. Teachers can select from the wide range of response activities that will involve the children in reading, writing, role-playing and the arts. Assessment techniques for supporting the poetry program complement this inviting resource.

Creativity and the Poetic Mind mingles the voices of well-known writers such as Nikki Giovanni, Donald Hall, John Koethe, Marge Piercy, and Robert Pinsky with newer voices, and includes engaging excerpts from interviews with thirty-eight American poets. Within a sustained argument about creative states of mind, this book innovatively presents and explores the technique of «going to the place» as more reliable in writing poetry than waiting for «inspiration». It explains why poets frequently believe that talking about their own poetry may damage their creativity and why, for centuries, inspiration has seemed to come from somewhere beyond the poet. In addition, it discusses the practicality of poets' thinking that «being creative» and «writing poetry» are two separate skills: inspiration is unreliable, but experienced poets create daily.

The incursions of women into areas from which they had been traditionally excluded, together with the literary representations of their attempts to negotiate, subvert and appropriate these forbidden spaces, is the underlying theme that unites this collection of essays. Here scholars from Australia, Greece, Great Britain, Spain, Switzerland and the United States reconsider the well-entrenched assumptions associated with the public/private distinction, working with the notions of public and private spheres while testing their currency and exploring their blurred edges. The essays cover and uncover a rich variety of spaces, from the slums and court-rooms of London to the American wilderness, from the Victorian drawing-room and sick-room to out of the ordinary places like Turkish baths and the trenches of the First World War. Where previous studies have tended to focus on a single aspect of women’s engagement with space, this edited book reveals a plethora of subtle and tenacious strategies found in a variety of discourses that include fiction, poetry, diaries, letters, essays and journalism. Inside Out goes beyond the early work on artistic explorations of gendered space to explore the breadth of the field and its theoretical implications.

The ultimate writing guide from the editor of Ink Knows No Borders: Poems of the Immigrant and Refugee Experience My Shouting, Shattered Whispering Voice offers ways to express rage, frustration, joy, and sorrow, and to substitute apathy with creativity, usurp fear with daring, counteract anxiety with the joy of writing one word down and then another to express vital, but previously unarticulated, thoughts. Most importantly, here you can discover the value of your own voice and come to believe that what you have to say matters. Especially at this time, when many of us are a tumult of emotions and have time on our hands, picking up pen and paper or getting yourself to a black document might be the best part of your day! By chronicling what you’re experiencing—the thoughts and feelings—you can calm fear and make art out of what’s troubling. But don’t stop there! Find beauty in the silence and celebrate having time to reflect. Written in short, easy-to-digest chapters, My Shouting, Shattered, Whispering Voice includes prompts and inspiration, writing suggestions and instruction, brief interviews with some current popular poets such as Kim Addonizio, Safia Elhillo, and others, and poem excerpts scattered throughout the book.
