This category includes poetry criticism and theory in the form of book reviews, essays, treatises and articles. The material covers a wide range - from contemporary to classic, regional to international. While some online journals and literary reviews are included, it is not primarily a category for webzines.
This is for websites whose main purpose is to provide a directory or list of poetry websites. If your website consists primarily of poems you or other non-published poets have written, use "Arts/Online Writing/Poetry" instead. If your website consists primarily of poems by published poets, then use "Arts/Literature/Poetry/Electronic_Text_Archives". If your website is a mixture of the above, then use the general "Arts/Literature/Poetry" category. If your website is a guide to other poetry websites, then use this category ("Arts: Literature: Poetry: Directories").
