Below are some links to some other sites and blogs I enjoy…
Poetry Sites and Socials
Lighten up Online – A British quarterly online journal, which is a treasure chest of light poetry, with emphasis on rhyme and metre. Join the mailing list on the home page to receive links to new issues.
Snakeskin Poetry – A wonderful monthly British online journal of poetry, featuring a real mix of styles from formal to free.
Light Magazine – A bi-annual online journal of light poetry, based in the USA. Light also features ‘Poems of the Week’ on topical issues, which are always thought provoking, sometimes hilarious. Sign up to the mailing list to receive these every week.
Rattle Magazine – I would particularly recommend following Rattle on Facebook. The live Critique of the Week videos are an excellent way to see what an editor may like in a poem – and what they may not like.
The Rialto – A highly respected British poetry magazine. The “In the Rialto” section on the website offers some really interesting perspectives on poetry. You can, of course, also order copies of the beautifully presented journal from the website.
Poetry Soup – A friendly and supportive network for poets, with poetry galore from both well-known poets and muggles.
