Top 5 Poetry Resources


Whether you are adept at turning out stunning poetry or simply desire to write a verse or two for someone special, you can find helpful tips and inspiration from the following poetry resources.

First and foremost, I like Poets.org. It has an educational teacherís page where you can find help to teach poetry. There is a "poetry for all occasions" page that gives you quick links to poetry for different times of the year as well as different sentiments and occasions. You can also find links to over 500 audios that date back to the 1960s. This is a definite stop for anyone who is wanting to write, learn, or hone their poetry skills.

Next, I find the Library of Congress Poetry Resources to be very helpful. They cover topics like: American Memory, Today in History, Teacherís page, Civil War Poetry, and one of my favorites, Abraham Lincoln and Poetry. This site is easy to navigate, as it has a clickable index on the right hand side of their home page.

Third, I would like to bring to your attention to The Poetry Foundation. This foundation publishes the Poetry magazine, a very worthwhile read. Based in Chicago, this group seeks to bring poetry to the entire United States through public programs and events. Examples of what you can find here are: a collection of 10,000+ poems, a Glossary of Poetic Terms, a Learning Lab, as well as an app for all you tech savvy poets out there.

Are you an amateur poet just getting started? If so, Poetry.com is a great resource to interact with other blossoming poets. Here you will find a community of other amateur poets at all different skill levels. You can relax and enjoy writing your poetry and sharing it with others without feeling nervous or overwhelmed. A great site to experience.

Lastly, Iíd like to introduce you to Poetry Daily. Every poet, regardless of time, talent, and experience needs good contemporary poetry to read and experience. Poetry Daily offers new poetry from magazines, journals, and new books every single day. Who says you canít find inspiration or escape into the hazy mists of poetic form? This is a great place to enjoy and learn from.

My list of Top 5 Poetry Resources is small by design. To list the vast numbers of poetry resources found online and off is way past what I can cover here. So, instead of producing yet another exhaustive list of links, I decided to bring you 5 fresh, current websites that can help you in many areas of your poetry writing.

If you have some favorite poetry haunts online or off, please join our discussion in my forum and share them with us. I would love to hear from you!

As always, Happy Writing.
