A place for the discussion of poetry intended for an audience beyond poets.
I would establish an epic-writing studio and hire others who write well-crafted blank verse so we could work together to write an epic that depicts the entire history of the world through biographies of all the greatest people of history.
First: run some poetry contests forbidding personal stories and slices of life, requiring three items per submission, one rhymed, one not, the last on the subject of treachery. When winners have been chosen, bundle selected poems with some typical of what appears widely. Then put online and promote heavily to get readers who will rate each poem on a simple scale of no,maybe, yes then tally results to see which get the highest ratings. Then publicize that to see if the poetry world will open itself to greater emphasis on variety and public preferences.
