Categorization guidelines for American poets
All American poets should be in one or more by-century categories based on when they wrote poetry (note: Some poets may be put in multiple by-century categories)
- Category:17th-century American poets (1607-1700)
- Category:18th-century American poets (1701–1800)
- Category:19th-century American poets (1801–1900)
- Category:20th-century American poets (1901–2000)
- Category:21st-century American poets (2001–2100)
They should also be sorted into the relevant state(s) they are from or did significant work in, under Category:American poets by state.
Poets should also be placed into Category:American women poets as appropriate, and into any relevant genre, time-frame, religion, or ethnicity or national origin categories as well. However, a poet should never only be in an ethnic or gender-based category - all poets should be in the century-categories at a minimum, and the state categories if relevant.
