The Crafty Poet II is organized into ten sections, beginning with "Revising Your Process." That section is followed by one on "Entryways into Poems" which considers how a poet might get going with a poem and how a poet might pull in a reader with humor and enticing titles. There is in-depth discussion of the importance of choosing the right words; using syntax, line breaks, and spacing to advantage; and enhancing the music of poems. There is a meaty section on how to add complication to your poems, another on how to divert or transform your poems from their original intention, and another on special forms of poems. In "Expanding the Material" three poets consider how to write poetic sequences using paintings, photographs, and history. The final section, "Revision," moves beyond the usual advice to "get rid of adjectives" as one poet offers ways to revise via sound, another offers a series of expansion strategies, and, finally, poet Dick Allen issues a warning against excessive revision. All ten sections include three craft tips, each provided by an experienced, accomplished poet. Each of these thirty craft tips is followed by a Model poem and a Prompt based on the poem. Each model poem is used as a mentor, expressing the underlying philosophy of the book that the best teacher of poetry is a good poem. Each prompt is followed by two Sample poems which suggest the possibilities for the prompts and should provide for good discussion about what works and what doesn't. Each section includes a Poet on the Poem Q&A about the craft elements in one of the featured poet's poems. Each section concludes with a Bonus Prompt, each of which provides a stimulus on those days when you just can't get your engine started.

In Poem Central, Shirley McPhillips helps us better understand the central role poetry can play in our personal lives and in the life of our classrooms. She introduces us to professional poets, teachers, and students--people of different ages and walks of life--who are actively engaged in reading and making poems. Their stories and their work show us the power of poems to illuminate the ordinary, to nurture, inspire and stand alongside us for the journey. Poem Central is divided into three main parts--weaving poetry into our lives and our classrooms, reading poems, and writing poems. Shirley has structured the book in short sections that are easy to read and dip into. Each section has a specific focus, provides background knowledge, shows poets at work, highlights information on crafting, defines poetic terms, features finished work, includes classroom examples, and lists additional resources.

Mit dem Überraschungserfolg »Bedeutende Objekte und persönliche Besitzstücke aus der Sammlung von Lenore Doolan und Harold Morris, darunter Bücher, Mode und Schmuck« erfand Leanne Shapton auf spektakuläre Weise die Liebesgeschichte neu. »Bahnen ziehen« ist ihre Liebeserklärung an das Schwimmen. Und wieder beschreitet sie neue Wege des Erzählens – in Wort und Bild. Der Geruch von Chlor durchweht dieses Buch, die Rufe des Trainers hallen darin wider. Junge Menschen auf dem Sprung zum großen Traum: Teil des olympischen Schwimmteams zu werden. Selbst jenseits des Beckens noch ist ihr Leben, sind ihre Gespräche und Träume, ihre Essgewohnheiten und Liebesbeziehungen geprägt vom Rhythmus des Trainings und ihren sportlichen Ambitionen. Doch wo hat die Faszination für das Schwimmen ihren Ursprung? In den Kinderbüchern? Den Familienausflügen ans Meer? Und was ist heute, wo ganz andere Dinge ihr Leben bestimmen, von dieser Faszination noch übrig? Leanne Shapton, damals selbst Teil der Schwimmmannschaft, geht diesen Fragen nach – Bahn um Bahn. So ist aus sehr persönlichen Momentaufnahmen zwischen Selbstdisziplin und Selbstfindung ein eindringliches, unmittelbares Panorama des Erwachsenwerdens entstanden. - Mit zahlreichen farbigen Illustrationen und Fotos

Das Mädchen von nebenan liegt leblos im Pool. Und der glitzernde Schein des Villenviertels "The Palms" ist zerstört. Von Beginn an hat Liz sich dort wie eine Außenseiterin gefühlt. Nur ihrer Tochter Danielle und ihrem Mann zuliebe ist sie in diese wohlhabende Nachbarschaft gezogen. Danielle freundete sich schnell mit der gleichaltrigen Kelsey an. Bald schon ging das Mädchen bei der Familie ein und aus. Bis sie im Wasser treibt, und jeder einen Grund gehabt hätte sie hineinzustoßen - selbst Liz. "In DeBoards neuestem Thriller trifft "Eine verhängnisvolle Affäre" auf "Desperate Housewives" ... Eine fesselnde Spannungsstory mit einem unvorhersehbaren Ende." - Booklist "Von Beginn an düster und unheilvoll hat mich der Roman ehrfürchtig zurückgelassen. Das Buch zeigt, was für eine brillante Autorin Paula Treick DeBoard ist. Faszinierend" - New York Times-Bestsellerautorin Mary Kubica
