    I don t really know what to make of this book, or even how to describe it The book grew out of the famous poetry class that June Jordan taught at Berkeley for many years, and it s something of a hodge podge The book is essentially a compilation of materials for and by the class student writings both poetry and personal reflections , a sample syllabus, lists of classroom ground rules, tips for staging readings, etc The book came out in the early nineties, and often feels a bit dated in some of its earnest political correctness and focus on identity politics But June Jordan was an incredibly impressive poet and activist, and the book is definitely imbued with her sense of poetry as a real tool for change It s an interesting book, I m just not sure how useful it is unless you happen to be trying to initiate your own version of the Poetry for the People course.

    A mix of everything how to write a poem plan a reading publish an anthology guide, poetry collection, curriculum, bibliography, reflection on experience The variation in content type from page to page threw me off a little, but I found this to be a rich resource Wish I was still teaching

    I found this book in a used bookstore in Mexico City one of the only English language books on the wonderful, musty shelves when I was living there It was such a delight, while living and working in a place where I had no writing group and didn t even know anyone who could read what I was writing This book has traveled with me in the decade since I read it, through my MFA program, through my first two books, through the first classes I taught Thank you, June
