Web sources on poetry

A few weeks ago my Antiquarian bookseller relative and I discussed the availability of poetry in the web. The shorter format of poetry and the web’s excellent search capabilities would at least in theory support the idea of poetry publishing in the web, although this may present a challenge to both the poets and the poetry book publishers – how to get any income on poetry?

But perhaps the web would only be the starting place for an increasing interest in poetry? This seems to be the idea on which some poetry websites have been created. Here’s a listing of some sites – I’ve not surfed enough to say that they are the best, but at least they are worth having a look. If you have interesting poetry websites to recommend, please submit your comment!
