Writing Poetry for Everyday Life
"Poetry is just the evidence of life," says Leonard Cohen. "If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash."
You don't need an advanced degree to reap the rewards of a rich poetic life-writing poetry is within the reach of everyone. Poet Sage Cohen invites you to slow down to the rhythms of your creative process and savor poetry by:

  • Offering explorations of the poetic life and craft
  • Inspiring a feeling of play instead of laborious study
  • Weaving together lessons in content, form, and process to provide a fun and engaging experience
  • Inviting you to add poetry to your creative repertoire
Writing the Life Poetic is the inspirational companion you've been looking for to help you build confidence in your poetic voice. It takes poetry from its academic pedestal and puts it back into the hands of the people.
