“These exercises work. They are simple and immediately usable in a class; they all lead to creative satisfaction: i.e. they are practically imaginative” —Richard Ramsbotham
This new edition of Sing Me the Creation has been thoroughly updated throughout, and there is a new first chapter and a handy index for reference.
Sing Me the Creation is an inspirational workbook of creative writing exercises for poets and teachers, and for all who wish to develop the life of the imagination. Paul Mathews gives us permission to indulge our fantasy, and then, when that life is flowing, provides the tools to craft it into poetry and song.
There are numerous exercises for improving writing skills and for self study. They are also ideally suited for group work with adults. Teachers will find these exercises popular with students.
Paul Matthews, a poet himself, taught creative writing at Emerson College, Sussex.
“This book is quite simply the best I have ever come across on Creative Writing. I think this is because it has a spiritual direction, and therefore makes sense overall. Most such books end up by having no idea what it is all for. Paul shows us this, with great strength.” —Peter Redgrove, poet
“The most unusual guidebook for creative writing in the world … this book has wings.” —Robert Sardello, PhD, from his Foreword
