9780071444361: Teach Yourself Writing Poetry

If you've ever wanted to communicate through poetry, or if you want to improve your poetry to a level where it could be published, this fully revised and updated edition will help you find your voice. It is an invaluable guide designed to help tap your creative potential. Covering all aspects of poetry writing, from imagery and cliche to different styles of writing, it is a 'must' for all would-be and budding poets. Written by two successful and previously published poets, "Teach Yourself Writing Poetry" demystifies the craft. It also gives practical advice, such as when and where to write, how to criticise your own material, and how to present your work for publication. Creative exercises feature throughout the book to help the reader improve technique. Suggestions for further reading (via the internet as well as books) allow the reader to continue their interest and build on the skills developed.
