A new book maintains that the power of the written word and free expression are crucial to sustaining a quality of life.

In his debut book Immediacy, author Rod Cockrum brings readers an interesting and personal collection of poetry that covers various experiences and emotions. Ranging from internal interactions to expressive responses and reactions to personal experiences, the book aims to engage readers with relatable, descriptive verses.

Maintaining that people need to embrace a diverse group of interests to ensure quality in life and create a balance between the intellectual and physical, Immediacy uses expression to aid in the clarification of the human mind. Aiming to provide readers an outlet for better understanding themselves, the book encourages people to be more attentive to the every day interactions that affect us all.
