One hundred links for writers, not just poetry.--Tyr


Poetry is one of the most historically rich, complex, and beautiful forms of expression in any language. The cultural and emotional impact that poetry has had over the years cannot be overstated. The famous writer Salman Rushdie said that ďA poetís work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.Ē This respect and fascination for poetry has spread throughout the world, and the mediumís incredible popularity has only grown.

There are journals and communities and magazines and competitions for creating poetry all over the world.
