Overview

How to Write Lyrical Limericks & Poems That Pay

Has anyone ever made verse pay during their lifetime? Yes.

Robert William Service - The Poet of the Yukon.

"I may be the only living writer to have made more than $1,000,000 out of writing verse."

That quote is from the Scots/Canadian writer of "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" and many other stirring verses. His was the poetry of the people and they bought it in droves.

If your main ambition as a verse writer is to make money (rather than seeking literary fame) take a leaf from Robert's book - learn to write for regular folk.

Words and rhythms that stir emotion, subjects that tug at the heart strings - "make 'em laugh, make 'em cry" you are an entertainer... a weaver of magic moments... a writer to be remembered, recited and quoted.

It is my hope that some readers of this book will one day be able to make the above claim for yourself. Whatever your outcome, you will have a lot of fun trying.

The pleasure of creative writing can be a reward in itself but if you want a wider audience it pays to know the techniques and tools of the trade.

Master the art of poetry from a book crammed with tips and tricks, and masses of examples. Suitable for beginners and children but anyone can benefit. Learn or just read for fun.

Have a look inside - it could be for you.

There was a young man, a good poet,

Was given a field so he'd sow it.

His first thought was, "Darn,

I'd rather weave yarn,

I'm destined to write - I just know it!"
