New Complete Index (in process)

I am currently reorganizing the Index to the PIP Blog, The Project for International Poetry archive. I hope this new listing will be clearer to read and easily to access than the listings I’ve provided in the past. This will take some long time to accomplish, so please bear with me as I proceed.

I also invite all poets to send me up-dates and corrections on their own entries or those of other poets. This archive will work only with the help of the entire poetry community. I cannot do it totally alone.

Send corrections and additions to the PIP Archive creator Douglas Messerli (douglasmesserli@gmail.com)
