You may know this news already, but I am very pleased to tell you that award-winning poet and translator George Szirtes will judge the IBPC poems for this coming summer. Last October, he did The Guardian''s poetry workshop. Here are the links:

Now, over at Poets'' Graves, there is a thread about him, begun by Cameron Self, who posts up an interview with George, and furthers the thread by putting up a link of a dozen of his sonnets. Here are the links:
