IBPC Newswire: Poetry & Poets in Rags of May Day

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags:

Good news! It's May 1st. One good thing about this is the flurry of poetry and insights into poetry that the newspapers ended Poetry Month with. And I can't say National Poetry Month, because Sarah Crown is doing it in England. Check her articles out in Great Regulars. She is also starting a Friday poetry reading at The Guardian's books blog: http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/arts/author/sarah_crown/index.html

I decided to make the entire Washington Post celebration, that links to several great articles, our headliner. But don't stop there, keep going. We have love stories and love poetry in season, and much much more in our bouquet. Happy May Day.

The results from Bryan Appleyard's first month as IBPC judge came in this past week, and most of you on the forums know that congratulations go to Bernard Henrie of The Writer's Block (http://www.the-writers-block.net) for his first place poem Winterset. Second place goes to May Lincoln Communes with the Dead by Ellen Kombiyil of Blueline (http://blueline.goobertree.com/forum/index.php). And third is the sonnet Bird Caller by Daniel Barlow of The Maelstrom (http://p200.ezboard.com/bmaelstrom38102). I also want to point out that two of the honorable mentions came from Mosaic Musings (http://forums.mosaicmusings.net), their first poems ever on the winners list: Drought by Jan Iwaszkiewicz and Masked Artwork by Elizabeth DiBenedetto. Way to go! Speaking of new ways to go, what many on the forums may not know is that Bryan Appleyard not only commented on the top three poems--but his selection process and the HMs as well. He's given us his gold, and About Poetry has displayed this in splendid fashion here: Winners chosen in the April InterBoard Poetry Competition: http://poetry.about.com/b/a/257399.htm
