Trawling his years of experience of modern poetry and poetry competitions Geoff Tims selflessly analyses the workings of modern poetry and gives away the hard-earned 'secrets' of his craft.

Broken into easily accessible chapters, with exercises, step-by-step instructions and analysis, Geoff Tims has created a guide that takes away every excuse for writing bad modern poetry.

Cognizant of the fact that a poet is the medium through which the poetry manifests itself, Tims' book comes with exercises which help develop the faculties a poet relies upon to wield his art.

Fully interactive and searchable How to Write Modern Poetry is one of those books that can be dipped into on the move, during a rare lull at work or at those times, at home, when the muse makes her demands upon us and we strain to catch her words and render them in a way that truly does them justice.
