A Magical Clockwork
Lessons in Writing
Three Ways to Grow As a Poet
Thank you for visiting Lessons in Writing the Poem. Wordwrights Canada welcomes all who love words and are serious about bettering their writing. Poetry, especially, is an intricate art that takes years of reading, thinking, and practice to master. Some writers are fortunate to attend courses and workshops in person. Others live in isolated communities, or prefer to learn on their own, in the privacy of their own homes. To help you broaden your creative knowledge and hone your poetic skills, Wordwrights Canada offers three different options.
