Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge is a poet and teacher who conducts workshops privately, as well as in the California Poets in the Schools program.

Review:

Poemcrazy is the poetic analog to Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird or Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones, two classic works on how to forget that you "can't write" and just start the pen moving. Susan Wooldridge is a swimming instructor in the wide ocean of language, encouraging us to move ever farther from the shore, dive deep, and dance on the waves.

Descrizione libro Random House USA Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Pbk.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Poemcrazy, Susan Wooldridge invites us into a realm where poetry is accessible, where poems are moments of discovery that often arrive unexpectedly - in parking lots, at the grocery store, on walks - and make our ordinary lives extraordinary. A poet/teacher in the California Poets in the Schools program, Susan starts us off playing with language. First, she shows how to create wordpools, helping us see we re all immersed in an ocean of words we use but largely ignore. We learn to create images, begin to develop metaphor, and gradually move into dream-sense where we can explore who we are in poems that carry us to deeper levels within. Susan helps us find our own poems by sharing the stories of how she and others discover theirs. Through delightful and often amusing vignettes of her own life and experience as a writer, Susan shows some of the possibilities words and images create. In practice sessions throughout the book, Susan loosens us up with language and demonstrates how to craft poems using a poet s tools such as journal writing, imagery, comparison, exaggeration, awareness of detail, and playful juxtaposition. For fifteen years, Susan has held workshops with adults and children, including teachers in training and adults in recovery. She s learned that in a safe, free setting, surrounded by words, anyone can write poems - often very good ones. Urged on by Susan s contagious enthusiasm, her love of her craft, her generosity of spirit, we too can enter the realm where language becomes magical and write poems that express more than words can say.
