(From the author's preface)
WARNING: Magnetic Poetry can be habit-forming. If reading the work of other magnetic poets inspires you to create your own, please use the magnetic-poetic tools included in this book:
--A poetry primer providing directions and suggestions for different kinds of poems, ways to approach the making of poetry, and tips and techniques especially appropriate to magnetic poetry;
--A portable "starter set" of words, including some not found in any other Magnetic Poetry kit, and a magnet-friendly front cover.
Keep this book close to you-poetry can strike at any time, anywhere. You'll want to be ready whether you're in a caf, or a Laundromat or in line at the bank. And send us your best poems-we'd like to read them.
