Poetic Potential: Sparking Change & Empowerment Through Poetry

Amanda’s debut nonfiction book explores her journey of self-discovery and empowerment, along with research, interviews, and anecdotes of others who have discovered the strength, hope, and love of poetry. We meet teachers, public speakers, scientists, non-profit leaders, students, and others who have seen poetry and writing change them. Amanda believes that, by reading Poetic Potential, women can find a method to rediscovering their confidence, self-worth, and power in order to transform their lives.
