www.poetryzoo.com – from Gillian Ferguson.
Funded by Digital Innovation awards from Creative Scotland and Scottish Enterprise. PoetryZoo aims to encourage creativity – the writing, reading and sharing of poetry – using the latest digital tools. It is custom-built for the needs of poetry. There is no need for any apps – the site adapts instantly to any device – poetry anytime, anywhere!
It is free to join.
Everyone gets a private Workspace to write in and work on their poems, or to import existing work – and a 'Poetry Window' to display their finished work – individual poems or building whole collections; this is fully integrated with Twitter and other social media.
There's 'Readers and Reading' – pretty much like Twitter's 'Followers and Following' – common interest/experience Groups; communal Anthologies; comments – and there's a 'Muse' space with editorial muse.poetryzoo.com, features on poetry, etc.
I am one of the co-founders and am a published poet myself – my 'Poetry Window' on the site is at poetryzoo.com/author/gilliankferguson.
