Voetry?

Do you write verse or poetry? John Barr, president of the Poetry Foundation gives us his take on what separates the two in "Is It Poetry or Is It Verse?"

And in what seems almost like a companion article, "Disappearing Ink: Poetry at the End of Print Culture" Dana Gioia addresses, among many other things, the way popular poetry forms like rap, hip-hop and cowboy poetry attract enthusiastic followings vs. the way the literary poetry establishment continues to need propping up with public monies.
