Reviews

"This is a wonderful book--smart, wide-eyed, joyful, helpful, inspiring. You're going to love it, and love writing poetry more for having read it."--Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird

"Wooldridge wants each of us to connect with our inner poet. Savvy . . . optimistic, warm, unpretentious."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Written with exuberance and great heart, Poemcrazy is a collection of high-spirited meditations and strategies which provide both writing teachers and students a wealth of approaches to poetry."--Wild Duck Review

"Poemcrazy is, in its simplest sense, a book of ideas and techniques for people who teach poetry. But Wooldridge's enthusiasm takes it into another realm, in which poetry is a state of mind, a way of being spiritual and powerful, a glimpse at the secrets of the inner self."--Arizona Republic

"Jubilant . . . More than an instruction book for tapping the creative and beginning to write, Poemcrazy is also about being alertly alive. It is a field guide to imagination."--Chico News and Review
