Reviewed by Samantha Coville for Readers' Favorite

Darrick Williams offers a variety of topics with his collection Writers of Words. There's love and motivation and everything in between offered in a range of poetry styles. He'll offer you the chance to think and rethink and see the world of thoughts and emotions in a new way. While there isn't a central theme, Writers of Words somehow becomes cohesive to create one reading experience to remember.

Poetry pet peeve: no 'easy to explain' theme about why your poems go together. And yet somehow Darrick Williams makes me forget this pet peeve and enjoy an insightful reading of well written poetry. His imagery and ability to incite emotions makes Writers of Worlds meaningful and yet enjoyable. My only issues in this collection stem from some word choices and the cover of the book. If those could be fixed, this would be a top of the line read that I would recommend to everyone. And another quick note, I love that Williams doesn't try to decide my thoughts on the topics for me. He presents me with opinions and allows me to consider how I myself feel about it.

The synopsis says you get to be judge and jury and that's really what it ends up doing. I wouldn't recommend this for a younger teen audience due to the deep topics that it covers, but adults will find this relatable and fascinating. I cannot wait to see what this author creates in the future because I am sure there is a long career ahead of him.
