    One thought on “Seeing the Blue Between: Advice and Inspiration for Young Poets”

    1. This compilation of poems and advice from poets is a great way to get students excited about poetry and motivating them to write their own. Each poet featured in this compilation wrote a brief letter to young poets inspiring them to write their poetry, before including their own poems. Many of them stress that poetry is unlike lots of things we learn about in school, and there is so much freedom there’s hardly a wrong way to do it; but, whatever you write must truly convey what’s in your min [...]

    2. Solid YA aimed book of poems and letters of advice from a wide variety of poets to beginning poetry writers.

    3. In Seeing the Blue Between: Advice and Inspiration for Young Poets, Paul B. Janeczko has compiled poems and advice for young writers written by some of the foremost names in children’s and young adult literature. The book contains letters from 36 different poets. Some of the most prominent among them are Karla Kuskin, Jane Yolen, Joseph Bruchac, Douglas Florian, and Naomi Shihab Nye. The advice given in the letters varies by author, but the most common piece of advice is to read widely and ent [...]

    4. This poetry anthology is a great tool for students who would like to begin writing poetry. This anthology is unique in that it is divided into chapters depending on the poet. Each poet writes a letter at the beginning of his/her chapter, directed at young poets. The letters are meant to inspire children to create poetry. The poets offer advice to the children about how they should go about creating verses. At the end of the letters, the poets wish the children luck in creating poetry of their ow [...]

    5. This is a poetry anthology compiled by Paul B. Janeczko that features 32 different, well-published poets. What I absolutely loved about this anthology is that it wasn't solely a compilation of verse text. The text is organized into sections based on the author of the handful of poems and at the beginning of each section (which features 2-3 pieces of poetry by the author) the author addresses the reader in prose. I find this a wonderful relief from all of the verse that could have been featured i [...]

    6. Another poetry title recommended by J. Patrick Lewis. This book features letters of advice from published poets to kids who are interested in writing their own poetry. Letters are short, inspirational, and full of great advice. No letter reads the same. Following each letter is a poem or two by that author.This is a great title to bring out during National Poetry Month or as part of a writing unit in school. Additionally, these letters and poems would be of value to an introductory creative writ [...]

    7. The advice to young poets = very good. Wish someone had told me some of these things when I started "seriously" writing poetry at age 13. The poems themselves = really poorly chosen, I felt. Very few of them interested or moved me at all, and I enjoy good childrens' poetry. There were a couple of very good poems in here, but no matter what age group this book is geared toward (I was never quite sure, but perhaps it's elementary school), I felt the poems were too geared only toward young children [...]

    8. Janeczko compiled letters and poems from thirty-two poets (most are well known) that offer very helpful suggestions to young poets as they begin or continue to write. The book is conversational and does not read like a textbook because it is broken up with lots of poetry and offers some humor. There is also a section of brief notes about each of the contributors that offers their background in literature

    9. This is one of my favorite anthologies! It even has letters from authors to explain their poems and give motivation to "the young writer". The poems are so classic! My favorite one was is what inspired the title. The Poem is about looking at the clouds, and instead of looking at the shapes of the clouds, the author looks at the blue between. It's beautiful! Side-note: My little sister wants to be a writer so I'm contemplating a christmas gift That's how much I like it!

    10. This is a great book for teaching about poetry. The different featured poets share their sometimes contradictory opinions about poetry, which gives the reader a broad scope of perspectives on the subject. And the poems, too, provide a broad scope of the genre, as well as being cute, clever, and enlightening. The targeted audience is obviously children, but it doesn't need to be.

    11. I stumbled across this book when I went to the library looking for poetry anthologies to provide to my class in order to help them in their search for a poem to memorize. I found I loved this book so much that I purchased it on Ebay so I could continue to use it in my classroom for years to come.

    12. Great for the young writer, very informative. I found it interesting how there are letters from real authors and it is not just a book of tips. loved the book, so you have to read it to.

    13. A collection of different poets giving advice for young poets and a sampling of their poems. An excellent book for young writers. Anything by Paul Janeczko is usually great for youngsters.

    14. My students who see themselves as writers and those I see as writers (all of them) benefit from the ideas "real" writers share in this slim volume.

    15. Awesome for use in the middle school classroom. Includes poems PLUS letters written by the poets to young writers.

    16. looks interesting - poets write advice to young writers. interspersed with poems. cover i have is nicer than above. janeczko has done so much collecting!

    17. Much of the poetry was fairly thin, though I read most of it. But I skimmed many of the intermediary notes, since many of them were similar – advice to potential young poets.
