Popular Poetry Web Sites for Young People

As we look for new places for poetry to pop up, you can be sure that includes the Internet. Many web sites make available actual poems, often including audio recordings of the poems and/or biographical information about poets, too. Some include teaching activities and even welcome child participation. Each site also offers links to additional poetry resources on the web. Here is a select list of sites that are particularly helpful in sharing poetry with young people.

The list begins:

Poetry Foundation

Poetry Out Loud

The Academy of American Poets

For more details, get your copy of The Poetry Teacher’s Book of Lists.
And if you already have the book and would like to offer additions, corrections, or other input, please do so in the COMMENTS area. Thanks!
