Below are video and audio links from, by, or with IBPC judges Frank Wilson, Majid Naficy, & Ravi Shankar


From the 2009 West Chester University Poetry Conference, we have on separate videos Frank Wilson interviewing former USA poets laureate Donald Hall and Daniel Hoffman, poet and writer Molly Peacock, founder of the WCU Poetry Center and conference director Michael Peich, and the child psychologist Dale Schellenger who talks about the connections between poetry and psychology.

Majid Naficy sent this link to me:

"A Few Simple Shots"

It is an hour and a half full length movie subtitled "Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Islamic Republic of Iran" and is well worth watching.


Headlining this past week''s Poetry & Poets in Rags, is an audio and a special report to The Hartford Courant about and by Ravi Shankar, who was arrested for "Driving While Brown" and, for instance, was called a "sand nigger" by the arresting officer as he was brought to the paddy wagon.
