Writing inspiration for non-poets: Mary Oliver's 'A Poetry Handbook'

I came out to Sag Harbor (generous friends!) to work on edits of my book Parkland: Birth of a Movement, and for inspiration, I brought Mary Oliver's A Poetry Handbook.

I am hardly a poet, but re-read it every few years, because I taught me so much of what I know about language and sounds. It's simple, engaging, and so enlightening.

Every writer should read it. Especially non-poets.
