I enjoyed doing the RPG post about Random Poetry Generators, so I'll step in, somewhat less irreverently - more informative. There are a lot of poetry and poetry writing resources on the internet - too many to share all of them this time. The web has opened up poetry publishing - never a remunerative activity - by making it even more affordable than the traditional broadside, chapbook, bootleg xerox at work, or even earlier stapled & smeared mimeograph. There are classics sites, online journals & online versions of prestigous print journals, high cannon anthology companion websites, poets' forums, how to write pages, poetry in translation, rhyming dictionaries, and so much more.
Surfing for former featured PWP reader (although hardly his main claim to distinction) Gary "Mex" Glazner as an example of NM poetry blogs to share with you, I came across Literary Kicks, billed as "where literature lives online" and an Interview With Gary Mex Glazner. Gary's poetry blog is howtopoet.
Dale has a page but no blog. Pages other than pwp ones for other PWPers: Bob Reeves; Todd Moore (Lummox Press); John Macker (Lunarosity); Mary McGinnis (VSA); Leslie Bentley; Debbi Brody. Late as I never got to completing links and bios for PWP page. How that flies depends on whether you are into "better late than never" or the Jesuit "better never than late."
The Harwood Anthology of NM Poets, published this spring, features poetry by PWPers Dale Harris, (I think) Greg Candela, and others. Other New Mexico poetry blogs:
New Mexico poets & poetry online:
- Santa Fe Broadside
- NM Poets (on PWP site - "Broadside" has been misspelled for something like 3-4 years without anyone - not even poets - noticing, surely a telling comment on an enduring indifference to poetry)
- Chili Pepper High
- Santa Fe Arts & Culture (youth) Poetry blog
- Poet's Corner, Steppin' Out's blog that isn't (a blog, that is - maybe SO ed just doesn't get what a blog is)
- Literary Kicks (mentioned earlier)
- Spam Poetry
- Poetry Blogs (links from poetry.about.com)
hoo hoo and now to crack out the good stuff...if anyone made it this far. I'll leave musings on what is poetry, slam vs academic, that pesky cannon, usw. for another time.
