To rhyme or not to rhyme? That's NOT the only question!

Lies offers practical advice on teaching the technical aspects of poetry, suggests ways to revise work and overcome writer's block, and discusses how to integrate poetry writing with other parts of the curriculum. Numerous exercises, examples of student work, an annotated bibliography of sources for further ideas, and a glossary of poetic terms are included.
