The Inspired Poet, which comes out of years of teaching and leading workshops, offers writing exercises, prompts, poems, and facts for poets, teachers, workshop leaders, and prose writers. They are meant to be invites for the Muses to come visit.

Even if you're not a poet and don't like to write, these invites might entice you to see yourself and the world in a new light. This book may give an insight into grief or a respite from grieving for something or someone lost--or for celebrating something found.

The exercises in The Inspired Poet can be used for your personal writing practice, for writing groups, leading poetry workshops, and in the classroom. Both novice writers and established writers can find inspiration in the 37 chapters of this book, each of which offers unique exercises on such topics as structure, pop culture, revision, mythology, grief, relationships, nature, symbolism/imagery, women's voices, psychology/sociology, and personal reflections on creativity/inspiration.
