Dear Poetry Aficionados,

IBPC: Poetry & Poets in Rags:

This issue completes our sixth year of Poetry & Poets in Rags, which began as Saturday postings. Each post linked to ten articles, and was shared at two now-defunct poetry forums, Atlantic Unbound''s Writers'' Workshop, and The Melic Review''s Roundtable, both InterBoard Poetry Community forums at the time. The IBPC started running with Poetry & Poets in Rags, maybe two or three weeks in.

We travel the world this week as ever, for the good and bad news on poetry, on poets, and by poets, including their poems. We begin with Seamus Heaney. The last article in our News at Eleven section (which contains eleven article links), is by Majid Naficy, born in Iran and now living in California. In between, in traveling the world of poetry, besides the UK and USA, we look into Tamil poetry, an Egyptian poet, and another from Viet Nam.

And that''s just for starters. We still have over two dozen items in Great Regulars, a section begun for the writers and columnists who were often if not always included in News at Eleven. Following Great Regulars is our Poetic Obituaries section, this week with memorials to 15 poets who recently died.

Thanks for surfing through.
