Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:
http://poetryandpoetsinrags.blogspot.com/

The last two weeks, the top stories in poetry have had to do with the Oxford poetry seat. This week, we have some interesting after thoughts on it, plus, believe it or not, an anonymous poem published by Oxford Poetry. But we begin with a look at creative writing in colleges. And on the Back Page, you''ll find interviews with this years'' Griffin Prize finalists. You''ll find plenty of excellent articles, and terrific poetry to click into this issue.

This week again, congratulations are in order on the IBPC boards (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com). Duncan Mercredi''s May results are posted in the IBPC site, and the winners are:
