How to be a Poet is the brainchild of poet Jo Bell and editor Jane Commane.

As a natural follow-on to the 52 Project of 2014, this book aims to help poets taking the next step in developing, working and participating in the wider creative community as a writer.

How to be a Poet combines practical advice and topical mini-essays that examine both the technical and creative dimensions of being a poet. It’s a no-nonsense manual where we’ve replaced the spanners with lots of ink, elbow grease and edits. At each step, we ask plenty of questions – what makes a poem tick over perfectly, how do we get it started when it stalls, and which warning lights should you never ignore?

Aimed at both new and more established poets, we hope there will be plenty for everyone here. And we’re looking forward to what our special guest contributors will have to add, also.
