Praise for Poem in Your Pocket for Young Poets
“Navasky chooses a diverse range of works, and the format encourages integrating poetry into everyday life.” –Publishers Weekly

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This robust collection of poems (which follows a 2009 title published for adults) is designed, not unlike a page-a-day calendar, for readers to rip out the poems (each of which get their own page) along a perforated edge to be stuffed into a pocket, taped on a wall, or given to a friend. The selections are divided thematically; Lisa Jarnot's "They Loved Paperclips" inaugurates works about everyday things, and "How Poetry Comes to Me" by Gary Snyder frontlines a section of poems that explore the creative process. Navasky chooses a diverse range of works, and the format encourages integrating poetry into everyday life. Ages 12–up. (Mar.)
