NPM: National Poetry Map

Npm_mapMan, this is so cool. has a National Poetry Map so you can click on a state and find out about local poets and poetry, the state Poet laureate, literary organizations, poetry friendly bookstores, writers conferences, etc.  For example, when I click on Illinois I find out that Li Young Lee is one of our local Chicago poets (already knew that) and that Kevin Stein is our Illinois Poet laureate (didn't know that).

This is a great resource for finding local stuff as well as expanding your horizons.  The more I use, follow their RSS feed, and listen to their Poetcast (podcast), the more I love this site.  Get on it.
