Welcome to the poneme blog



It's been a long time coming - the poneme blog, a dip into poetry both here and there.

Thoughts, ideas, poetry projects. A bit like mucking around in boats - you never know where you end up.
 
poneme started as an email list of poets from Australia, United States and Britain with the occasional European posting thrown in. 

poneme evolved from the first poetryespresso email discussion list started in 2001 by Cassie Lewis, an Australian poet now living in Rochester, New York.

An on-line poetry zine foam:e is another spin-off from this on going loose collaboration of poets.

foam:e is edited by Angela Gardner with guest contributing editors. Issue 5 is due soon.

Thanks for the great blog Heather. The best thing about blogs are that poets' groups & their poetry gets noticed through Google.
Nice to be part of the poneme group! Cheers, Helen
