Teach Yourself Writing Poetry
More than 60 years ago, the Teach Yourself series made its debut with titles such as Teach Yourself Flying, Teach Yourself Embroidery, and Teach Yourself Good English. Today this series continues its pioneering ways with hundreds of self-study titles reflecting 21st-century interests including computers, New Age subjects, and new technology as well as old favorites such as card games, arts and crafts, and foreign language. Each new Teach Yourself cover will boast a striking photograph that has a whimsical take on the book's subject. For quick information on the book's content, the cover also has a small bulleted list that lets readers know just what exactly awaits them inside and how the title will fit their needs.
