Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge is a poet and teacher who conducts workshops privately, as well as through Poets and Writers Organization Her exuberant, critically acclaimed teaching guide, poemcrazy: freeing your life with words, (Random House, 25th printing) helps each of us begin to delight in language.
has a unique way of encouraging words to come forth, helping us ask our hearts, minds and souls to explore who we are, where we come from and where we are going.
Even people who think they can't write amaze themselves with what spills forth in a safe setting when they are immersed in words.
They hide in feelings and images, in weeds and delivery vans, daring us to notice and give them form with our words.
They take us to an invisible world where light and dark, inside and outside meet.
