The book is organized into ten sections:
Generating Material / Using Time
Imagery / Figurative Language
Going Deep / Adding Layers
Line / Stanza
Writer's Block / Recycling
This book can be used by the individual poet studying and working independently at home. Or it can be used in the classroom or workshop.
I hope you'll soon find The Crafty Poet in your hands and that it will offer you much to think about. Of course, I also hope that it will stimulate you to write some new poems.
One of the nicest compliments I've had on the book so far came from my publisher who said that he'd had a hard time doing the edits as he kept wanting to stop to write a poem.
