One of the Internet’s first online communities!

Hi! My name is Walt F.J. Goodridge, author of Turn Your Passion Into Profit and founder of the Poets Niche. The poets niche represented a unique moment in the history of the Internet. Founded in 1997, just when the world wide web was becoming mainstream, the site became home to a unique community of poets and writers who shared their passion, had meetups way before blogger meetups became fashionable, and even published our own anthology of poetry! While that moment has passed, I've kept the site up as a historical record and as tribute to the unique community of poets who found a home here! Enjoy the memories!
