The Poetry Foundation

For all your poetic needs and then some, check out The Poetry Foundation. It is an independent literary organization "committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture".
It is also the publisher of Poetry magazine, which was founded in 1912 and has published the likes of T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, H. D., William Carlos Williams, among others.

In November of 2002, 87-year-old philanthropist, Ruth Lilly, gave Poetry magazine a whopping $100 million. With this money, The Poetry Foundation was established in 2003 and
has gone on to become one of the largest literary foundations in the world.

You can tell they've taken great care in creating an advocacy machine for verse, with poetry, audio files, podcasts, articles, and links up the ying-yang. You'll be overwhelmed by all its great features.
