Strange to see this crop back to the top of the list after so long - but I just read it for the first time and had the following two URLs:
http://www.dublinwriters.org/ - A writer's workshop
http://www.traditional-poetry.org/ - a site for traditional poetry (duh!) A friend of mine (Patrick Walsh) contributes regularly.

Brick, thanks for your contributions -- and for resurrecting this topic!
Ok, here's another one, a fun one: The Dialectizer. It's pretty good. You type in some text, or give it an URL, and it'll reproduce it in any of half a dozen dialects (more to come, they say).
Here's my first sentence, rendered in Redneck:
“Thanks fo' yer corntribushuns -- an' fo' resurreckin' this hyar topic! Fry mah hide!”
(I kinda got a giggle out of that gratuitious “Fry mah hide”)

finish the list before adding it to my favorites.
