Description


The ultimate writing guide from the editor of Ink Knows No Borders: Poems of the Immigrant and Refugee Experience

My Shouting, Shattered Whispering Voice offers ways to express rage, frustration, joy, and sorrow, and to substitute apathy with creativity, usurp fear with daring, counteract anxiety with the joy of writing one word down and then another to express vital, but previously unarticulated, thoughts. Most importantly, here you can discover the value of your own voice and come to believe that what you have to say matters.
Especially at this time, when many of us are a tumult of emotions and have time on our hands, picking up pen and paper or getting yourself to a black document might be the best part of your day! By chronicling what you’re experiencing—the thoughts and feelings—you can calm fear and make art out of what’s troubling. But don’t stop there! Find beauty in the silence and celebrate having time to reflect.
Written in short, easy-to-digest chapters, My Shouting, Shattered, Whispering Voice includes prompts and inspiration, writing suggestions and instruction, brief interviews with some current popular poets such as Kim Addonizio, Safia Elhillo, and others, and poem excerpts scattered throughout the book.
