Welcome to a 52 week learning process where we will present you with a lesson, exercise and then you can post it to the web site for sharing. Your progress, learning, or simply a way to make sure you write something every week is our way of thanking you for becoming part of the CFP family.

If you would like to take it a step further, we are offering a "Canadian Federation of Poets Certified Poet" Certificate to members who successfully complete all 52 weeks.
