my favorite poetry tool
A wordpool is word bank that act as a jumping off point for freewriting, poems, or any kind of creative writing. The words can come from anywhere, but they're typically kind of juicy and evocative. You'll see what I mean!
If you're blocked, taking writing too seriously, or want to experiment with a found poetry technique. A wordpool is a poem machine.
Print it out, cut out the words, and let the sparks fly. Or let your eye wander the page until two words snap together like magnets, producing an image.
