Home Links to British Innovative Poetry Sites (2018)

Well, here we are. A revised and uptodate (May 28, 2018, rerevised September 20) list of sites relevant to British (& Irish: we are inseparable) Innovative Poetry, presented here in a beta version. Ie I'm sure there are innumerable omissions, errors and distortions. Please tell me of them, eg by email to peter@greatworks.org.uk, or any other email address of mine, via FaceBook, facetoface, mail, anything.

This page contains lists of "resources, lists and other foci of information", "British & Irish online magazines, e-publishers and other assemblages of writing" and "writers' homepages, blogs etc". Additional lists are now on Links to British Innovative Poetry Sites (2018). After about a month, I'll redo modernpoetry.org.uk, put the individual lists on separate webpages, and consign all else to The Archive (still accessible, but I'm warning you it's past its sell-by date.) I will mark all future additions and emendations to these lists.

I'll repeat what is on the old equivalent page: Users are reminded the site is under a Creative Commons license for its non-commercial sharing, so if anything is useful it can be reused & carried on elsewhere. The domain name is a good one; if anyone wishes to carry on its use for a similar purpose, email me to discuss your plans, and I'll simply arrange transfer. It's your turn. And some way of acting as a clearing-house for events too will be needed.

resources, lists and other foci of information

3:AM Magazine Maintenant Interviews

A useful resource for British poets is the astonishing series of 80+ Maintenant Interviews on 3:AM Magazine by SJ Fowler – interviews with (translated) poems by contemporary European poets, slewed interestingly away from the familiar to cover a wide range of states and cultures, (even Britain and Ireland, including Tom Jenks and Holly Pester), ending in May, 2015 with Rhys Trimble. Read it! Use it! Crush Little-Englandism now! Look out too for events curated by the indefatigable Mr Fowler, often at Rich Mix.

I have tried to ensure each poet's name is given as s/he appears to wish it to be presented — please notify me of any errors. Note coverage of Twitter is very patchy — should I include it at all? Be more definitive & thorough? I haven't included Facebook, except when it is very specifically signposted, though that is a major communication medium for several poets — should I? Perhaps selectively?? I have also not included blogs that are not open access. indicates dead poet
