    One thought on “How to Write a Poem: Based on the Billy Collins Poem "Introduction to Poetry"”

    1. Read this for the second time as the first craft book for my senior thesis. It's been a couple years since I read it for my intro to creative writing class, and it was really fun to see how I've incorporated Runyan's techniques into my writing process. Although this book is geared towards beginners, it's good to return to it and be reminded of the basics, and I would definitely recommend it for poets just starting out!

    2. I used this book to help teach my high school students how to write a poem. The author has an easy-to-follow process for the reader to use to compose and revise a poem. The anthology of poems included in the book is diverse. I love that the author includes prompts with each poem to get the student to interact with the poem.

    3. Geared towards the absolute beginner, this book offers a lot of quality lessons for new poets. Not a lot of depth or advanced lessons for poets who have a book or two under their belt, I could see using this in a high school workshop.

    4. I read lots of books of this type — pretty much all I can get my hands on. I'm rating it 4 stars, taking into consideration its aims and audience. It's not reallly for the experienced poet — but it's full of good tips, reminders, examples, and prompts and includes a review of Peter Murphy's revision suggestions (Murphy's Revision Style Sheet). It gave me a lot of ideas for new poems of my own and I'll use some of the prompts in teaching and online workshopping.

    5. Well, of course! Any English teacher worth her salt would follow up a brilliant book on how to read a poem with an equally wonderful book about how to write a poem. Runyan's book is, once again, a kind, unassuming invitation to give poetry a try. This very, very gentle introduction would work well for anyone--I'd say seventh or eighth grade or over. I'm well into middle age, and I turned out a couple as a result of this nifty little guide.
