The Internet is an amazing resource for connecting with the world of poetry - with the poems themselves, with the people who love to read poetry and the writers of poetry. Connections that used to be impossible or took lifetimes to make, can now be found in a few clicks. Check out these amazing sites to connect with other poetry lovers:
This site aims to provide useful resources on English degrees and careers. From literature to linguistic studies, a Masters in English provides students with a broad background in theory and research, and can prepare you for a wide variety of career
The Poetry Archive is a not-for-profit organisation that produces, acquires and preserves recordings of poets reading their own work out loud. They make substantial excerpts from our recording sessions freely available online through this website and our dedicated Children's Poetry Archive.
The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.
Poetry International was born out of the Poetry International Festival, which has been bringing the absolute best international poets to appreciative Rotterdam crowds since 1970. The annual festival each June remains our most important activity, along with the Poetry Archives online, which collects and showcases poets and poems from around the world.
The Poetry Society was founded in 1909 to promote “a more general recognition and appreciation of poetry”. Since then, it has grown into one of Britain’s most dynamic arts organisations, representing British poetry both nationally and internationally. Today it has more than 5,000 members worldwide and publishes the UK’s leading poetry magazine, The Poetry Review, which has been published since 1912.
The Poetry Society of America places poetry at the crossroads of American life. The PSA transforms public spaces into sites for imaginative encounters with poems, engages diverse and often underserved communities, amplifies the voices of poets around issues of common concern, and honors their aesthetic contributions to our lives.
Their mission is to foster the professional development of poets and writers, to promote communication throughout the literary community, and to help create an environment in which literature can be appreciated by the widest possible public.
Poets.org, presented by the Academy of American Poets, showcases more poets and poems than you ever dreamed of. You'll find biographies and photos of more than 450 American poets, past and present.
