Today is all about playing with words and adding to our word/poetry toolbox. In the video, I mention Susan Wooldridge's book Poemcrazy, which I think is a must have for anyone who wants to play with words and poetry. I also mention Diane Ackerman's book A Natural History of the Senses, which is a very sensual, informative, gorgeous book that I often turn to when I just need to ground myself in the senses and beautiful language.
In the video, I also share a photography prompt inspired by gathering words: As you wander in your world this week, be on the lookout for juicy words in unexpected places - like menus and on sidewalks and in grocery stores and even around your home. Snap a photo! If you Instagram, use the hashtag #poemitout.
