Poetry for Life
“Why poetry? You might as well ask, Why chocolate?”
from The Joy of Poetry
The more you read poetry, the more you’ll have what poet Jane Kenyon called “good sentences in your ears.” The more you write it, the clearer your own writing will be, even if you don’t consider yourself a poet.
Join us at Poetry for Life for a few minutes of poetry fun each week. I’ll share a poem and invite you to read along and journal through it. You’ll also be invited to write your own poem in response. Once a month we’ll have a poetry roundup.
There will be some serious poems and some nature poems and some poems for children and maybe even a recipe poem. Could you do this on your own, without my help? Sure you can! But will you?
I love to help writers to make poetry a part of their life so they can read with attention, write with skill, and live with a full heart.
When you sign up for Poetry for Life on my Substack, I’ll send you a free copy of Poetry | Tea | Joy: a creativity workbook (actually, an e-workbook). It’s about poetry being a side door when you can’t write or even when you Can’t Write.SIGN UP
P.S. If you already have a poetry practice that you enjoy, then drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and share what resources you have found inspirational.
