Where poetry is thriving online

Katherine Larson, the 2010 Yale Younger Poets choice

Where do you go for poetry on the web? There are hundreds of poetry websites, but some have more to offer poets and their readers. I've compiled a list of over 100 sites where the art of poetry is thriving, sometimes in surprising places. It's posted as a pdf file at the following link, to make it easier to save on your computer or mobile device. I hope you find it useful.

List of poetry journals and other poetry websites - updated 4/26/14

While putting this list together, I made quite a few discoveries myself. Here are a few highlights:


  1. Thanks to my father who shared with me concerning this website, this web site is in fact amazing.

    1. Glad you liked it. Thanks for the link to your blog. I'll take a look.

  2. I think what you said made a bunch of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I am not saying your information isn't solid., however what if you
    added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Where poetry is thriving online" is kinda vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article titles to
    get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or
    two to grab readers excited about what you've got
    to say. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    1. Thanks for your comments. With this post, I didn't include any video because many of the links in the annotated list of sites have video of their own, but I agree that video is great way to attract readers' attention. I've tended to link to video rather than embed it in my posts, but I'll try doing that more.

      There's a lot of video on two sub-domains of this site, translations.diehoren.com and favoritepoems.diehoren.com. One of my favorites is Darya Rusalkina's reading of Bella Akhmadulina's "In the Month of May"; the link is right under my translation:

  3. This is excellent, thank you very much

  4. Hey Frank!
    I have tried to find a way to get in contact with you but, since I couldn't find any email or contact form, I'll write here.

    I have just completed a personal project of mine: it's called Poetz (https://poetz.it) and it's a resource for Italian poetry-lovers to read and discover new poets and poems. It is completly in Italian but I've stumbled into this blog post and seen you talk about an Italian poetry magazine, so I thought you might be interested in Poetz as well.

    If that's not the case, feel free to delete this comment :) Bye!

  5. Thanks for your comment, Tommaso. Sorry there isn't an email address here (perhaps I should add one), but here's my business card, which has full contact information:

    1. And thanks for the link to your site, Tommaso--it's very elegant looking. I'll take a closer look and also share it on social media, if that's OK.

    2. That would be great, actually!
      Yeah, it might be a good idea to add your e-mail in the blog's footer, you never know


Thanks for your comment. It should appear here shortly.
