Poetry Magic

Poetry Magic is a resource centre for the theory and craft of writing and analysing poetry. What is poetry? How does it differ from prose? What makes poetry special, and why is it so difficult to write? This site provides some clues to these and other vexing questions, plus a vast array of material to understand what makes poetry compelling, authentic and relevant. With over 250,000 words, Poetry Magic is the largest resource centre anywhere for poets, aspiring poets and students of poetry.
