An inspirational collection of poems, letters and advice for budding young poets. Everyone watches clouds, Naming creatures they've seen. I see sky differently, I see the blue between - As a new poet, you are discovering your own way of seeing yourself and the world around you, and learning to transfer your thoughts and observations into poetry. But it's easy to doubt yourself from time to time. Seeing the Blue Between is a book of advice, encouragement and example - full of letters written by 32 renowned poets. They've even included a few of their own poems, in case you need inspiration. These poets have spent a lifetime experiencing the challenges of writing - and the thrill of seeing the world with a unique eye. Young and budding poets will benefit from their words of support and wisdom.
