Like the Heart, the World

Like the Heart, the World

Sage Cohen’s first full-length collection of poetry explores the concentricities of inner and outer landscapes. Like the Heart, the World accompanies the reader through the blighted streets of New York losses, the oceanic melancholies of San Francisco and Portland’s orchestral embrace of the ripening, welcomed self.


“This book is a must have for anyone who has loved deeply on the path to finding your truest self. If you love Mary Oliver, Sharon Olds or Louise Gluck, you’ll be very pleased to discover Sage Cohen and keep her poems on your nearest nightstand or safe inside an everyday backpack. I adore this book.”
Jen Lemen, founder of Mondo Beyondo

Writing the Life Poetic

Writing the Life Poetic

No one needs an advanced degree in creative writing to reap the rewards of poetry. Writing the Life Poetic puts poetry back into the hands of the people–not because they are aspiring to become the poet laureate of the United States–but because poetry is one of the great pleasures in life. Writing the Life Poetic is packed full of captivating new ways to generate ideas and have fun with the writing process. 80 short, friendly chapters address a mix of content, process and craft ideas that can help anyone build skills and confidence in their poetic voice.


“Instructional without being text-bookish, inspirational without being preachy, suggestive without being demanding, Writing the Life Poetic goes beyond the assemblage of quality how-to poetry books to become a work of art—with endless rows of blank canvasses on either side for the reader’s own brush strokes.”
Shawn Sorensen, Oregon Writers Colony
