    quite inspiring

    Fueled with the want to write my own poetry, I set out to find a book on how to go about it, and this book was better than what I expected to find. It gives great ideas for writing, includes poems as examples and inspiration, and points out all the aspects for writing great poetry. I highly recommend it, no matter what level you're on.

    A world of Information

    This book is very readable. I didn't like the student poems though. But the information about the places to publish and how to go about having your materials published is excellent. The assignments are challanging and a good way to overcome writers block. All in all a great buy.

    Fantastic!

    This book is fantastic! Whenever I get writer's block, I just pick it up and it gives me loads of ideas. I rarley need to read more than a page or two before ideas spring to mind. I love it!

    A Great book for young and old alike

    I thought this was a great book and could be enjoyed by anyone young or old. It helped me come along way in my own writing. The different exercises and topics really help alot. Comming from two authors who are experts in the subject of poetry I recommend this book to anyone interested in poetry no matter your level of experiance.
