Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

It''s a wide-ranging week and a full one too for poets and poetry in the news. The articles we link to come from all over the world, and cover people and places, scientific study and religion, books and films, prisoners and birds, the ancient and the current, war and peace, and so much more. No unified theory of poetry here, but a lot of compelling reading for you. In Great Regulars the holiday season is brought in, Belinda Subraman begins a new series, Linda Sue Grimes joins Garrison Keillor with seven posts, Roger Robinson calls us to write on fatherhood, and there are just so many excellent poems to be found. We begin, though, in News at Eleven, to find out what Philip Larkin really thought of his mum and dad.

Also this week, we congratulate the poets who wrote the winning poems for November''s InterBoard Poetry Community. Alice Folkart''s poem Certain in my Immortality - 1947 (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/certain-in-my-immortality-1947) won the whole shebang for Blueline Poetry Forum (http://blueline.goobertree.com/forum/index.php). Jessica Haynes'' poem String theory (Shrodinger''s coffin) (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/string-theory-shrodingers-coffin), workshopped at MoonTown Café (http://www.moontowncafe.com), came in second. Clothespin (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/clothespin) by Sarah J. Sloat of Desert Moon Review (http://www.thedesertmoonreview.com/cgi-bin/discus/discus.cgi) came in third. And snagging an honorable mention for Poet''s Graves (http://www.poetsgraves.co.uk/forum/index.php) is ''Appy ''Our (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/appy-our) by Stuart Ryder.

Many thanks to Majid Naficy (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/majid-naficy) for the time and care in selection, and the wonderful commentary he gave for the poems this month. Thanks also to you for clicking in. I''d better let you get to reading.
