Feedbooks | Free eBooks for Android & iPhone/iPad poetry lessons | Apples and Snakes In this section we have specially commissioned poets to choose one of their own poems which has been successful in schools. They tell the story of what inspired them to write that poem and give you a rare insight into the workings of a poet's mind. Following on from each poem are some of the poet's suggestions for exercises that you could do in the classroom to develop poetic writing. Each poet has approached this in a different way and we hope this gives you a taste of what it might be like to have a poet visit your school.

As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes.
