Summary

This new poetry writing book emphasizes poems written by readers and small press poets.

The book does discuss traditional elements of poetry (i.e., rhyme and poetic forms), but deals more in poems that create their own form and music; the book suggests that poems needn't be somber, obscure, dull, or only about proper poetic subjects (like nature and death); it suggests that lightness shouldn't be confused with lightweight, that entertainment and clarity are not necessarily marks of shallowness, and that poems should be about anything people think about; and the book is written with the belief that people can be dissuaded from the idea that poetry can't speak to them; that it can become an enjoyable and popular art form to both read and write.
