About this title


Drawing on his extensive experience of poetry workshops and courses, Peter Sansom shows would-be poets how to write better, how to write authentically, and how to say genuinely what is to be said. He illustrates his book with many useful examples, covering the areas of writing techniques and procedures and drafting. Writing Poems includes sections on meter, rhyme, half-rhyme, and free verse, fixed forms and how to use them, workshops and writing groups, writing games and exercises, a detailed and annotated reading list, and a glossary of technical terms.


'I would recommend this book to any student - It's funny, honest, thoughtful, realistic' - Gillian Allnutt, Northern Echo. 'Peter Sansom's handbook is The Haynes Manual for Poetry' - Cliff Yates. 'Peter Sansom is the best poetry teacher in the world' - Sian Hughes, Guardian. 'The classic Writing Poems - indispensable' - Naomi Jaffa, Poetry Trust.
