Poetry Periscope

I've been thinking about the oceans of poetry on the internet, and the time it takes to search for the good stuff in the midst of the not so good stuff, and I've decided to do something about it.

Introducing the Poetry Periscope

Why does the world need a new listing service? There's a lot of places elsewhere which list personal poetry websites. But Poetry Periscope is more than a simple listing service - it's searchable. Poets can list their websites, add a quick blurb about themselves and their poetry and select some keywords which best describe the sort of poetry they write. Then visitors can come along and search the database for the sort of poetry they're interested in reading.

The site is in beta-testing, but still very much at the useable stage of the development cycle. If anyone wants to add their website details to the database, then please do be my guest!
