Product Details


Write It! might be one of the friendliest poetry tool kits/notebooks ever. As the title suggests, the book is very direct. How do people write about feelings too difficult to face directly? Is listening to trees possible? Is that rain talking to me? How many names does any person really have? The editors—Jessica Jacobs and Nickole Brown, both fine poets themselves—make us feel lucky to sit at their table. Readers will learn about writers and quotations, multiple perspectives, possibilities, and tactics while feeling deeply befriended all the way. Who knows where you might go? I plan to write on every page.”
—Naomi Shihab Nye, Poetry Foundation’s Young People’s Poet Laureate

Write It! is an absolute pleasure, a gentle, encouraging guide for discovering the stories around and within us. Jacobs and Brown serve as fairy godpoets, bringing us the words and wisdom of beloved writers along with prompts to inspire and embolden. This book asks us to be curious and open, to find ourselves in the mirror and on the page. It shows us how to eavesdrop on the world and our own hearts.”
—Janet McNally, The Looking Glass

“These soul-searching prompts inspire conversations with oneself, our world, and poets who have come before us. As a teacher and author, I’m equally excited about sharing this book with my students and diving in myself!”
—Nicole Kronzer, Unscripted

“Jessica Jacobs and Nickole Brown are two poets of presence, passion, and purpose. I am constantly learning from their brilliant poems and how they both inhabit the natural world around with them with immense light and graceful precision. This book of beautiful writing prompts is a safe space to explore the depths of your imagination, overflowing with favorite lines from beloved writers and soul-stirring questions. Write It! will help you deepen your writing practice as well as your relationship to identity, place, and community. Sometimes there is nothing more terrifying than a blank page or blinking cursor. Sometimes you need the right nudge and spark, these one hundred prompts are lit matches waiting for you”
—Tiana Clark, I Can’t Talk About The Trees Without The Blood
