Caught on the Net Poetry Project

Caught on the Net
_____In March, 2005, this question was posed to members of the four senior online critical fora:

_____ Suppose there were an anthology of poems by the best online English language poets. Whose work (other than your own) would you like to see included?

_____ Congratulations to the nominees! I'd like to thank those who nominated and voted for these fine poets.

_____ 643 votes were cast by 133 voters for 162 candidates. Please note that this poll was taken before the arrival of such noteworthy poets as A. Michael Juster, D.P. Kristalo and Catherine Rogers.
