Alan Cordle, exposing the seedy world of poetry competitions



Chroncile of Higher Ed

had an article on Monday about Alan Chordle (aka "the scourge of the poetry world"), an academic librarian and poet, who runs


, a website that serves as an expose of corrupt poetry contests. When he isn't ridding the poetry world of corruption, Alan is a librarian at
Portland Community College.


I don't know how much longer this will be available, but for now the article on Cordle in the Chronicle of Higher Education is available without a subscription here.
