How to Inspire Poetry?

I was asked yesterday how to enthuse a class of teens to read and write poetry.

Despite having published a few poems and won one first prize, poetry is a total mystery to me, unlike the writing of shorts. I can sometimes stumble into a poem but the underlying craft... pass.

If anyone out there reading this nknows a way to get kids going on this, please email me at
