Reviews

"This book restores the present and possibilities to every reader as the gentle, brave practices frame poetry as both the starting point and the solution. Any moment can become a poem and your poem can open up whole new ways of thinking and feeling and being. Suskin's tools create a way back into the self for the world-weary reader." --Beth Pickens, author of Your Art Will Save Your Life

"It sounds naive, but it's a beautiful truth that Suskin's writing will make you feel either more alive or ready to take the steps to begin living in a state of justified awe. This is not a book of goopy wackadoo-woo-woo: this is a practical guide for everyone to learn the requisite art of slowing down, becoming more curious in order to 'nurture transformation and love limitlessly.' Get out your pickax and get ready to mine the wonders of this life on earth through the power of poetry." --Derrick C. Brown, author of Hello. It Doesn't Matter., UH-OH, and How The Body Works The Dark

"Jacqueline Suskin shows us poetry isn't just an art form, it's a way of seeing the world, and it can be learned. This is her transformative instruction manual for poetic writing, thinking, and healing. Suskin has an immense creative gift that cannot be replicated. But in Every Day Is a Poem, she patiently breaks down the parts of her process that can be replicated, and generously offers them to the rest of us. I wept with joy, relief, and awe while reading this book. It felt like I was seeing the inside of a clock I'd thought was operated by unlearnable magic." --Hallie Bateman, author of What to Do When I'm Gone
