Marvin Shaw's poetry touches our senses, inspiring us to write our own poems and engage with them.' Miriam Reissner - Freelance Journalist 'Poetry For Health celebrates the healing power that emerges when people, who have never written before, express things long held (and withheld) within them. The emotional range of its suggested exercises is really good.'
