Abstract:

This is the beginning of a poem about making a snow angel, but it might also refer to the mysterious way that a person comes into being and takes on a life of its own. In his new collection, Ralph Fletcher shows how you can write a poem about almost anything: a baby sister, a Venus's-flytrap, a failing grandmother, a squished squirrel, romantic disasters, grammar homework, and more. These poems take us inside the creative process as they reveal both the playfulness and the power of poetry. More than anything, "A Writing Kind of Day" is a generous invitation to pick up pen and paper, to write some poems of your own.
