Women poets register launched | 04-May-11

A-gender is a new database of contemporary women poets currently living and working in the UK. The criteria for being listed are:
publication of a pamphlet or collection (not self-published), living in the UK at least part of the time.

It has been set up by Ros Barber and Jackie Wills with contributions from a number of other writers.

All are working voluntarily to make this the first comprehensive list of women poets in Britain.  A-gender is now encouraging women to upload their own profiles and pics to the website:  where there are clear instructions on how to do it and what to include.
