A great poetry website, the Museum of American Poetics is by Jim Cohn, an alumnus (interpreter) who was involved in the early years of ASL Poetry in Rochester, NY. He published ACTION magazine which includes poems by Deaf poets Patrick Graybill, Peter Cook, and Debbie Rennie. He also curates Golden Bodies, an exhibit of MAP-inducted poets with disabilities. Take a look at the ASL Poetry Archive from his website listed below.
