Resources for poets and poetry online Audio
Beginning with John Berryman’s historic first reading of The Dream Songs on Halloween night, 1963, the Academy of American Poets has presented and recorded over 700 poetry readings, lectures, and symposia, making the Poetry Audio Archive one the world's richest aural records of poetry.

American Poetry Review Photo Records
"For readers looking for the visage behind the verse, the American Poetry Review photo records offers a perfect, and possibly voyeuristic, solution."

"A gallery, archive and radio show featuring a wealth of recordings culled from poetry readings over the past several decades."

Poem Present
"The University of Chicago's contemporary poetry series with archived readings and lectures, as well as the discussions they inspire."

From the Fishouse
"An audio archive showcasing emerging poets reading their own poems, as well as answering questions about poetry and the writing process."

"Visitors to the site are as likely to download a Renaissance visual poem as they would listen to the MP3 of Louis Farrakhan singing."

Poetry Archive
A free collection of new recordings by contemporary poets and historic recordings—primarily from the United Kingdom.

Wired for Books
"Home to scores of poetry audio clips, ranging from a reading of Homer’s The Iliad in ancient Greek to poems by Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, and John Keats."

BBC Books
Many of the recordings were made during BBC radio interviews, and include exciting discussions with Dylan Thomas, E. E. Cummings, and others.
