Edited by Rishi Dastidar, this title brings together some of contemporary poetry’s most skilled practitioners to offer ideas on the making of poems. The book covers practical techniques – the nuts of bolts of putting poems together, mastering poetic forms and titling poems, the art of long sequences – and also includes essays on using technology in poetry, truth and fabrication, and performing poems, with the ambition of being a guide to both the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of poetic craft in the 21st century.
