This collection of raw, handwritten poetry allows readers to experience the creative writing process firsthand as they enjoy the depth and resonance of the art itself.

Touching on themes of love, loss, and life experiences through her own eyes and the eyes of others, author Ciara Dove invites readers to laugh, cry, smile, and be empowered to create their own art. This collection of poetry spanning from haikus to free verse to rhyming and acrostic, demonstrates that imperfection is perfection.

Authentic: Poetry in the Raw brings readers into the striking imperfection of the poetry process by showcasing the scans of the original handwritten poem drafts. In allowing the world to see her scratches, doodles, and flaws, author Ciara Dove hopes to aid aspiring poets in seeing their own progress through the artistic process.

The presentation of the original handwritten drafts alongside the typed final products make this book an excellent tool for creative writing professionals to use in teaching the art of crafting poetry. Aspiring poets can see the process by which author Ciara Dove puts her thoughts to paper, moves them around as she sees fit, and then comes up with a final draft intended to evoke emotion. Authentic: Poetry in the Raw will appeal to poetry fans who enjoy the writing process.
