This is a useful book for any hobby poet. However although the exercises are interesting as they help you build up your skills and confidence it feels from much as though one is working through the author's course notes. Alison Chisholm is a tutor for the well known correspondence school the Writer's Bureau and the book has a slightly sterile classroom feel about it.

The Craft of Writing Poetry by Alison Chisholm does just what it says on the tin! The book teaches the reader, step by step, that poetry is a craft and not purely the domain of the esoteric intelligentsia. It is written in clear precise language that guides the pupil through the various processes that make a poem. It covers both free verse, a number of set forms and provides many exercises to act as triggers for poems. The motto of Liverpool poet Adrian Henry was, `If you think you can do it and you want to do it, then do it!' this book provides the inspiration to do just that!
