Please feel free to comment/improve and or give additions. I removed some that did not exist any longer, or that I found inappropriate for whatever reason (not very interesting, for example, or not related to poetry).
With thanks to Hugh Clary for his comments and help.
“The time has come the walrus said
To talk of many things,
Of shoes and ships and ceiling wax
RESOURCES and such things.” (with apologies to Lewis Carroll)

The neurotic poets site is of value:
I couldn't see this site [www.poetrymagazines.org.uk] of poetry magazines in the list.
If it's there or you choose to add it to the list or think it's no use, please feel free to delete this post to keep the thread managable.
An interesting site, thanks. Their search engine could use some help, though. Searching for Philip Larkin, for example, produced many results for each of the words philip and larkin, but looking for "philip larkin" produced only one, eliminating many of the positive matches. Very strange - perhaps I am doing it wrong.
In a constantly changing world, these resources will never be complete, obviously. Manageable? Probably not that either. A monumental task, Desi, but a useful one.
Desi, thanks for going through a huge pile of stuff and making some sense of it all.
Having it in a shorter list should make it more useable for us readers.
Bump, cos I just had to search for it for a site I knew was here.
Desi, please add this to our poetry websites, it deals with visual poetry: [www.gardendigest.com] />
Thanks Desi, yes I think it is in the correct list.
