This creative resource is a blend of autobiography, poetry, and an exploration of creativity to encourage students to try different ways to get their thoughts on paper. This stream-of-consciousness exploration is a step-by-step guide to the creative process and each chapter adds a new exercise for readers. The author— a US Poet Laureate—weaves his personal experience and cultural heritage into his writing and encourages students to do the same. The many visuals and interesting text elements may pique students’ curiosity. Best used as a teacher-supported exploration of creative writing and poetry with grade 4-12 students.
