Poetry is a funny subject here at Ready 2 Write Services. We've found that people either love poetry or hate poetry...there really is no happy medium. But whether you're a fan of poetry or you're not, learning about the classic words that have changed our literary history is important. In fact, poetry has existed for over 1,400 years! That's a long time!
Below you will find resources on popular poets and the poetry they have written, as well as how to write your own beautiful poetry. If you have never given poetry a shot, we encourage you to join our poetry writing seminars! They're fun and free!! (See the about us page for more information on these poetry seminars!)
