The Starlite Cafe debuted on the web in the fall of 1995, as a place for poets and lovers of poetry to come together and share their gifts of words and creativity.

WHY WE ARE UNIQUE!
First and foremost the Starlite is unique in it's sense of community spirit and compassion which exceed the boundaries of cyber space and stretch out into the real world. Poets both newcomers and old-timers often refer to the cafe as a place of healing.
The special features offered on this poetry site are found no where else collectively on the Internet today. Poets are able to upload their own graphics, add music, special effects and a wide variety of colors all to enhance their writing. Each poet has their own library of poems containing all of their current and archived works to share with friends and maintain an electronic record.
These are just a few of the reasons that once a poet finds their way into the cafe, they soon take up a lifetime residence.
