Find Your Voice describes itself as “a guided poetry journal for your heart and your art”. It’s not a book to teach you how to write, and it encourages the creation of accompanying collage art work, but it doesn’t set out to teach that either. Rather it wants to “take you on a creative journey” with the intention of guiding you towards your own writing style and, perhaps, your own illustrative style too.
Noor Unnahar has divided her book into three parts: Uncover Your Writing Stye, Discover Poetic Devices and Find Your Voice. She encourages you through inviting prompts and suggestions on how to mine your daily life for ideas. She finds ways for you to be inspired by things and opinions you hold that are uniquely yours.
It’s a great little book with far more depth than its slight size would suggest. We can’t rate it highly enough!
