Publisher's Summary

Following the success of several recent inspirational and practical books for would-be writers, Poemcrazy is a perfect guide for everyone who ever wanted to write a poem but was afraid to try. Writing workshop leader Susan Wooldridge shows how to think, use one's senses, and practice exercises that will make poems more likely to happen.

Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge is a poet and teacher who conducts workshops privately, as well as in the California Poets in the Schools program. Her exuberant, critically acclaimed teaching guide takes instructors, writers, and general listeners into the very heart and intensity of life and the craft of expressing what one feels through the written word.

Her Words, Her Voice...

The print version of this book captivated, liberated and inspired me. Hearing the author read her words, with the tone and inflection she intended, is an aural treat. The sound quality isn't the best, but that quickly fades as the words and events take center stage. We see how the power of expression transforms rowdy students into conscientious helpers, withdrawn individuals into resolute communicators. This thin book and relatively short listen is a rich experience, one that instills an appreciation for life and encourages creative engagement. Highly recommended.
