The site includes an archive of over 11,000 poems and over 2,500 biographies, and users can search and browse according to poem subject matter and forms. The site also features articles, podcasts, audio and video recordings, educational materials, event listings, and poetry tours, as well as Harriet, a blog that includes poetry-related news and features a monthly blogger.
