Poetic Potential: Sparking Change & Empowerment Through Poetry (Paperback)
"Writing poetry is a liberating act."
In Poetic Potential: Sparking Change & Empowerment Through Poetry, author Amanda Karch introduces us to the power of poetry through her own journey of self-discovery and empowerment and through those of the people she has met. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she decided it was time to pick up a pen and write herself out of isolation and the confines of the four walls of her room. This led to her debut poetry book, Her Favorite Color Was Sunshine Yellow.
While sharing her poetry, Karch encountered not only the words on the page but the power behind them. Through research, interviews, and personal anecdotes, she was able to dig deeper, sparking questions and thoughts that can lead women through a rediscovery of confidence, self-worth, and power to transform their lives. Along the way, we meet teachers, scientists, public speakers, non-profit leaders, students, and others who have discovered the strength, hope, and love of poetry.
Through Karch's "Poetic Practices" found at the end of each chapter, you will be able to pick up the pen and travel on a journey to find your own poetic potential
