Popularity of online poetry soars

The Daily Telegraph reports on the popularity of online poetry; observing that it has managed to take off on the internet with the speed of wind. This unlike its traditional print counterpart that had for years now, mourned a tragic and shocking decline in readership.

The British based Poetry Archive has released statistics that viewers are now viewing millions of its pages a month. Britain's Poet Laureate Andrew Motion who remarks on the exciting accents and rhythms of the many American poets from their different state regions in audio recordings from the archive, says that he plans to add more poets and wonders if poetry books have been "outmanoeuvred by the internet".

If you're a poet or poetry lover, you may find the rest of this article exciting.
