United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera can, and he's here to teach you everything he knows about being a real-life, bonified, Jabberwalking poet! Jabber Walkers write and speak for themselves and others no matter where their feet may take them-to Jabberwalk is to be a poet on the move! And there's no stopping once you're a Jabber Walker, writing fast, fast, fast, scribble-poems-on-the-run. Scribble what you see Scribble what you hear It's all out there - let's go! Vamonos!"

Professional reviews

"Herrera is at once a wise teacher and an anxious new U.S. poet laureate. The listener must write a poem, he thinks. Herrera is eager to help while he walks his dog, Lotus, and heads to DC's Library of Congress. This is no passive listen--it's an experience! There are sound effects as you learn to jabberwalk. Herrera's excitement guides the jabberwalking--gathering inspiration and making scribbles and burbles. The listener's poem will be brilliant--but the process is what this book is all about. Herrera stops his instruction for short remembrances of his childhood. The narration is less a book than a 1.5-hour spoken-word performance/writing lesson/kick in the pants to get writing. Take Herrera's advice and listen during a jabberwalk of creative inspiration. M.P.P. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
