The best poetry blogs in town (we think)

Tuesday, 09 September 2014

There's a wealth of poetry blogs out there, if only you know where to look. We've picked our favourites of the moment – the list is always growing. It is also an incomplete list; if you have any other suggestions then please tell us in the comments below!

Baroque in Hackney

Baroque in Hackney has been running since June 2006 and was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize in 2012. Katy Evans-Bush (@KatyEvansBush) knows about poetry and – a rare gift – writes brilliantly about it. Here’s a post from earlier this year which showcases her lightly worn erudition.

Dave Coates writes knowledgeably and thoroughly about the poetry world at davepoems.wordpress.com.

Helen Mort's Poetry On the Brain is fascinating and potentially addictive. Helen Mort is a PhD student at Sheffield University researching metaphor, contemporary poetry and the influence of neuroscience. She also writes poetry.

Jon Stone, poet and editor at Sidekick Books, runs the brilliant gojonstonego.tumblr.com Tumblr. 

John Field's blog is teeming with thoughtful reviews and amusing poetry reading anecdotes.

Anthony Wilson poetry. The Poetry Trust called it 'disarmingly open…one of today’s most popular and essential online reads'. Says it all.

You'll find a mix of journal entries, links and essays, on everything from poetry to politics on the brilliant George Szirtes' blog.

Two more for luck:

Robert Archambeau and David Wheatley.

A good poem must invade our soul and mind like those every lines live in our subconscious sanity. It should catch our attention and adore it forever. :)

my blog of my humble musings, I focus on short poems often only a few lines, exploring the journey from heartache to happiness, hence the name of my blog.

I know snow are rubbish, but I would like to feel some are at least OK,

After many years of writing, I recently embarked on a daily post of original poetry:

There is quite a wide variety, and you are very much invited to visit.

While I'm entirely late to the party, I very much enjoyed these blogs. Jon Stone's actually led me to the Cartridge Lit, an online journal dedicated to video game related pieces, very cool.

If somehow anyone manages to see this, I post daily writing prompts (or writing exercises if you prefer) on my blog at http://notebookingdaily.blogspot.com
