poemcrazy: freeing your life with words

Cover to poemcrazy

Are you inspired by life, whether light or dark, to mark moments or passages with words that dance, shout, or whisper your personal truth? You might be poemcrazy. Author (and poet) Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge certainly is. In her book, she shares how she sees the world as a poet as she’s progressed from shy teen to mother to writing workshop presenter.

Susan invites readers to play with words, too. This National Poetry Month, pick up poemcrazy for friendly inspiration on how to write down your feelings and contemplations. The chapters are short. The advice is inspirational. Once you’ve created your poetry, you can keep it to yourself, or, until April 15, you can enter the library’s Claudia Emerson Teen Poetry Contest for students in grades 8 through 12.
