I am extremely impressed by and excited about this workbook. Not only is it simple, easy to follow, and fluent,  but I truly believe that by having read it, I am more comfortable with writing poetry. I’ve always had trouble with this style of writing because as you mentioned, it really is the hardest type to create. However, reading this workbook has given me a newfound confidence, similar to the one I first acquired when I read the life-changing novel, Polly Wants to Be A Writer. – Nina
