Kate Clanchy – How to Grow Your Own Poem

As I continue this “Morphment” to Kevin Alan McGill, Social Philosopher Poet and Storyteller, I picked up this amazing book – How to Grow Your Own Poem by Kate Clanchy. And it is just wonderful.

Kate is a poet and teacher that I came across taking one of those free courses from FutureLearn. The course comes from the University of Reading in England. She was one of their featured lecturers. And as soon as she started talking, I thought “Wow! Here’s someone I can really learn from!”

Her book is about how to create a poem construction process for yourself. It provides exercises and examples to help you get your ideas out and to shape them according to the you that you are.
