By no means a comprehensive list, these links are a list of organisations, events and individuals who have sparked our interest over the last ten years.
a reliable institution, and home to the Poetry Cafe
Now sadly in hibernation as of late 2014, one of the more interesting offshooting from the poetry world: music, poetry, some film making. Their website is still worth a look, even if it is no longer updated.
Jacob Sam-La Rose's blog. Lots of reviews, thought-pieces and poetry.
JC writes two excellent blogs, but for some reason wordpress doesn't allow me to link to either. So google her name and you should find both; And Other Poems is specifically about poetry, the second a general blog about being an artist and a mother.
Todd Swift's blog on modern poetry. More opinionated than the average
poet, Eyewear divides opinion. Is it a serious meditation on the state
of the art form or a gigantic narcisstic pop culture project? Check it out and
decide for yourself.
Ben Parker writes an entertaining review of new poetry, fiction and
further links to reviews and his poetry.
Kevin Reinhardt's insane night out of bingo, karoake, poetry and anything else that comes into his head. Normally once monthly, currently running out of
the Gunners Pub in Arsenal, North London.
Worldwide competition for young poets, supported by tall lighthouse. Not to be confused with Foyles the bookshop, which has very little to do with modern poetry at all.
