Online Poetry – Two Sites with Something Different to Offer
This is an exciting project, as Poetrypoem.com want to help you to host your own poetry website – and it’s completely free. Their income is derived from the advertisements displayed. The individual poetry websites are colourful and creative, so go online and have a look at how others have promoted themselves.
Look through several other poets’ working websites to fully explore what is possible, then create a website that reflects your own poetic persona.
Go to the site and click the “sign up now” button. You will see your own Poetry Control Panel, where you can add, edit and delete your poetry. Add your own background, or select from the backgrounds available on the site. This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who needs an easy way to set up a professional poetry website.
This site is for those who want to test the boundaries of writing. Deep Underground lists its poems under categories including Dark Poems, Erotic Poems and Drug Poems as well as the more conventional Love, Observational, Upbeat and Spiritual categories. There’s something here for everyone so take a look at the site and read some of the material. You can add images or a spoken video, create a profile, join the forum and “like” or comment on poetry submitted by others. They promise your email address will never be shared.
Deep Underground says it embraces the freedom to push boundaries, challenge ideas and engage in thought-provoking discussions. Think about what deeply moves you. Could it be the basis of a poem for Deep Underground?
