Publisher Comments:

You do not want to write good poems. You want to write great poems. You want to write poems that challenge, inspire and awe. You want to write poems that forever alter your audience, that forever alter yourself. Those poems take guts. Glitter in the Blood: A Poet's Manifesto to Better, Braver Writing will put you in constant contact with your guts. Pushcart prize nominated and highly accomplished performance poet Mindy Nettifee is not going to lead you step-by-step up a how-to staircase. With this collection of essays, prompts and exercises, Mindy is giving you the wrench you need to open up the blood and let it flow into your writing.

Dorothy Kent, January 30, 2013 (view all comments by Dorothy Kent)
Mindy Nettifee's work has already changed my life, as it has yours if you've read or listened to her. She illuminates our existence and our reaction to it with wit and intelligence and moxie and courage and, and, and power that roars and intimacy that flutters. But reading and hearing is only part of the story. I'm a writer and a poet so I am always curious about what makes my favorite writers write. What inspires them, stops them in their tracks, do they have a method, how do they maintain a practice? Is it more like putting out a fire or starting one? But I still want to read an interesting book. I needed a manifesto, not a how-to. And this, as they say, is that.
It is powerful stuff. It will rumble in your hands.
