I’ve discovered how to post poems without excessive spacing between each line 🙂
In poems, lines are often short, hence the need to press “enter” or “return” before the full width of the page. This results in default paragraph spacing which is too widely spaced for my liking, especially over a lengthy poem.
So after a little searching, I found on: https://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/
Hitting the Enter (Return) key will end the paragraph you are writing and start a new one. If you want to start a new line without creating a new paragraph, press the Shift key while hitting Enter.
Just thought – if its helpful to me – might be helpful to others starting out …
