    In the past, so much writing on writing has seemed stiff to me I have not read many writers that focus on the inner life of the artist, the technical aspects of writing AND the spiritual benefits of writing However, SAGE COHEN does all of these things and so much Only a poet could pull it off.That being said, if you love writing or if you want to start or even if you want to learn how to appreciate life and appreciate the present , I would recommend that you read this book ASAP.I would like to [...]

    The first thing I noticed about Writing the Life Poetic when I opened up my package was the beautiful cover Already, before even opening the book up to the first page, my senses were heightened by the brilliant designs and colors When I ran my fingers over the cover of the book I was pleasantly surprised by the raised designs especially on the back cover and the raised text Just holding the book was a poetic experience Then I opened it Wow I was struck by the contrast between the bright white pa [...]

    Writing the Life poetic was published in 2009 although I ve only recently come across it The blurb describes it as the inspirational companion you ve been looking for to help you build confidence in your poetic voice It is organised into eighty short chapters with a discussion and a try this section of exercises I wish I had found this book when I was starting out writing poetry It would have been so useful and encouraging As I m now a little further on with my poetry some of the ideas I already [...]

    Wonderful tips for a beginning poet, as well as prompts for a practiced poet This is a good reference book for getting back to the basics of why we write poetry It is a thorough look at all aspects of writing poetry from starting out, to publishing, to bringing a project to fruition It is peppered with great poems that introduce the subject of the chapter at hand And the illustrations are whimsical and fun I highly recommend it I will use it in the classroom as well.

    I never thought that embellishing my everyday could be this much fun The poet making baby steps revealed by Sage Cohen are every one inviting and worthwhile on their own She s a master of play and perception I expect this book to be a delight for years to come The collage of text and fanciful illustration make it a good one for those daily private minutes You know, like when you re falling asleep.

    The following review appears in the March April 2009 edition of the Colonygram, the newsletter of the Oregon Writers Colony WIDE EXPANSE THE POETIC CANVAS OF SAGE COHEN While reading Sage Cohen s guide to creating poetry, Writing the Life Poetic, I saw a bridge open up before me, crossing the Willamette River into western Portland I was on one side, ruminating about my literary insecurities, my smooth poems and the many that, to put it politely, needed work read jackhammer and saw and what my wr [...]

    A good book that eases readers into getting a hang of poetry and opening your eyes to inspiration in everyday life Language was simple and easy to understand without being too simplistic The book was visually a joy to read with beautiful but non obstructive art and design that made each page look clean and exciting at the same time For me, the pace of the book was rather slow and I spent a lot of time skipping parts I thought were not very important to me Sage Cohen s writing is nonetheless easy [...]

    The design of this book is lovely Thank you, underpaid Chinese printers I like the author s tone so many writing craft books designed for course use are condescending or smug It s a nice addition to an apprentice poet s writing craft bookshelf.
