Whenever you write a poem, you leave a little of your soul in the words. Despite the fact that you are always writing for an audience, be it a figment of your imagination or a national readership, poetry writing is still a very personal endeavor. In The Rhythm Method, Razzmatazz, and Memory, Keith Flynn teaches you how to take your personal memories, feelings, and thoughts and transform them into energetic and vibrant poems. While such fiery poems may not be your style, there is still much to discover about poetry writing in this book.

Flynn is the author of four collections of poetry, and his poems have appeared in numerous publications. In The Rhythm Method, Razzmatazz, and Memory Flynn explores the deep-rooted connection between poetry and music and how many of the skills used in song writing are also applicable to writing poetry. The book is divided into three sections: The juxtaposition of poetry and music is undeniable, and Flynn's book is an ideal introduction to the study of this edifying subject. In addition, this book also serves as a poetry primer that will teach you not only the mechanics of poetry writing, but how to find your inner voice and to create dynamic poems. The Rhythm Method, Razzmatazz, and Memory is suited for poets of all ilks and skill levels. In addition, much of the information presented in this book will also be of interest to writers of fiction and other writers looking to add a poetic bent to their writing.
