According to their website, VPN is a hub for discussion, resources and advocacy. They welcome scholars, teachers, students and passionate readers to join them and help promote study of this wonderful subject. Launched in January 2011, they aim to forge a network of those interested in Victorian poetry scholarship. Discussion is promoted through the blog forums, written by an international team of invited scholars at various levels of their careers. These posts cover a wide range of issues around Victorian poetry: conference reports, new publications, calls for papers, opinion pieces, poem readings, new research and new scholarly discoveries. They are also the home of a major new resource in progress, the Database of Victorian Periodical Poetry, and inaugurated the wiki Victorian Poetry, Poetics, and Contexts (now at a wikispaces site: http://victorianpoetrypoeticsandcontext.wikispaces.com).
