Synopsis:

What makes a poem a poem? is it simply a matter of taking words and writing them out in verse form and making them rhyme? Or is it actually much more than that-the use of rules about meter, form, and rhyme to create a framework for the expression of special observations and ideas?

POEM-MAKING is a handbook of the mechanics of writing poetry. In a clear, understandable tone it introduces children to the different voices of poetry; types of rhyme and other elements of sound, rhythm, and metrics; and some of the most common forms of poetry.

Myra Cohn Livingston is a well known author, anthologist, poet, and teacher. She has used all her experiences in these fields to make POEM MAKING a useful, accessible, and unique guide for children to use in creating poems of their own.

About the Author: Myra Cohn Livingston has over 50 books to her credit, including (with Norma Faber) These Small Things, a 1987 ALA Notable Book a Booklist Editors’ Choice, and a CCBC Choice. She has twice won the Texas Institute of Letters award, and she received the 1980 NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry.
