Tools & Tips for Poets will help you craft, critique and publish your poetry. You'll learn how to craft poems that surpass a mere sum of their parts; how to merge what a poem means with how it means; how to merge showing and telling, imagery and information, facts and feelings; how to touch your readers with sight, sound, sense and spirit. You love your poems and want them to be well-received. Like children, they deserve the best preparation you can give them, because once they leave home they will have to speak for themselves. Take your poetry beyond fireflies and lightning bugs. Engage your reader's thoughts and feelings with fire and lightning!
