Writers, Like Hats begins with an ode and ends with a philosophical message from one of my students; in between is a variety of genres for enjoyment and meditation. Three sections explore the natural world, the world outside, and the world inside. In the appendix, readers find instructions for writing riddles, sonnets, and celebrations of self, as well as samples from students. I invite you to enjoy the music and magic of poetry that lifts us to new heights in Writers, Like Hats. "Trish Frech's untrammeled poetic style opens to the reader her deep attachments to Nature, her concerns for the world and its people, and her insights into her own Life. But it is more than that: many readers will savor the vivid images, carefully turned phrases, and playfulness of her poetry. Teachers of poetry, moreover, will find not only rich material to share with students but in the Appendix four ready to use methods (with student samples) for creating poetry itself. Frech's insights into her on life's arc and into momentous questions of our times are offset and [made pleasurable] by her simplicity of phrase, colorful wording, and frequent evocation of Nature." Review of the final manuscript from Gordon B. Donaldson, Jr., Professor Emeritus at the University of Maine.
