Surrender in the Battle of Poetry Web Sites [US]:
W. H. Auden may have lamented that "poetry makes nothing happen," but that has not kept poets themselves - and their enthusiasts - from using the Internet to make trouble when they get riled up.

This week the poetry world is atwitter over the closing down of an Internet site that for the last year dedicated itself to exposing what it calls fraud among the small circle of poetry contests that frequently offer publishing contracts as prizes.

Alan Cordle, a research librarian who lives in Portland, Ore., has managed the Web site, www.foetry.com, anonymously since its inception a little more a year ago.

He called his site the "American poetry watchdog" and aimed to expose the national poetry contests that he said "are often large-scale fraud operations" in which judges select their friends and students as winners.

But Mr. Cordle's identity, which he says he protected to avoid recriminations against those who joined in his fight, was revealed earlier this month. [...]

Good morning, dumbfoundry. This would probably be more appropriate as an e-mail but I've had trouble tracking down addresses for you all.

For the past couple of months I've been building a poetry community/metablog site called PoetrySpace (http://www.poetryspace.com) that's approaching the end of beta. I've added dumbfoundry into the site's news aggregator because I really love the poetry news and information that you post here -- it'd be hard to track it down one piece at a time and it's a really valuable service to have it all in one place.

I also appreciate your individual blogs and the way you're all applying new technology to the old, old medium of poetry.

If you have a few minutes, I'd appreciate if you could take a look at the Poetryspace site and let me know what you think -- I could use the feedback of experienced bloggers like yourselves. If you want to sign up for an account there, I'd be delighted. If not, I'd still like to hear your feedback and advice on how to make the site better and more useful before its launch.

Thanks for your time!

The NY Times covered this a bit late and a bit loose, but it was good to see the papers noticing poetry again.
