In Every Day Is a Poem, Jacqueline Suskin uses poetry as a tool for finding clarity and feeling relief, interweaving her own work throughout. With provocative questions, writing practices, and mindset exercises, she shows you how to focus your senses, cultivate curiosity, and create your own document of the world’s beauty. Emphasizing that the personal is inextricable from the creative, Suskin offers specific instructions on how to make a map of your past and engage with your pain to write a healing poem. She reveals that we all have the ability to create beauty and meaning out of difficult and overwhelming times. 

Jacqueline Suskin has composed over forty thousand poems with her ongoing improvisational writing project, Poem Store. She is the author of seven books, including Help in the Dark Season and Every Day is a Poem. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, the Atlantic, and Yes! magazine. She lives in Northern California. For more, see jacquelinesuskin.com.

Getting to Center: Pathways to Finding Yourself Within the Great Unknown meditates on endings, grief and joy, ease, hope, addiction, and beginnings, pairing Marlee's own experiences and wisdom with practical exercises and tools for creating balance and understanding within the natural changes of life.

Marlee Grace is a dancer, writer, artist, and shape maker. She is the author of two books, How to Not Always Be Working and, most recently, Getting to Center.
