Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words

poemcrazyPoemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge.
210 pages, paperback. Three Rivers Press.

Some people collect stamps, figurines, or salt and pepper shakers. Susan Wooldridge is a collector of words. It was through Poemcrazy that I was first inspired to start my own word collection. Most chapters – with provocative titles like, “Lying to Tell the Truth,” and “Stirring the Sky” – end with intriguing writing exercises. Each chapter is short and to the point, with just enough to get you itching to pick up a pen and start creating.

For those who have an ongoing love affair with poetry or words, Poemcrazy will set fire to your spirit. Part autobiographical journal, part instruction, this book offers a delightful peek into the author’s soul as well as ways to gain insight into your own.
