Syeds, I don't think there is a web site, but you can email your poetry entries. You asked about poetry guides for beginners-- One book that is really geared for beginning poets and is supposed to be excellent:
Ordinary Genius: A Guide to the Poet Within, by Kim Addonizio

She was also the co-author of another poetry craft book called, The Poet's Companion. Both of these books are used often poetry creative writing classes. Hope you find them helpful. Thanks for stopping in.
