Dear Poetry Aficionados,

We have an interesting, varied, and packed week, beginning with a link to the forthcoming book of letters between Ginsberg and Kerouac. News at Eleven continues with our lead story from last week, The Globe and Mail''s series of poets on poets. We pick up another series, this one in The Guardian, which asks several writers, which religious poet would you want with you on a desert island.

In Great Regulars, among the columns, David Biespiel offers an article on the state of poetry in America, and Judith Fitzgerald writes up this column, Poetry & Poets in Rags. Lots more too, some interviews, some terrific new poetry, and more interesting columns to read, not to mention our Poetic Obituaries.

Congratulations are due. April''s IBPC results are in (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2010/4), thanks to our new judge, Fiona Sampson (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/fiona-sampson), whose fine commentary accompanies the poems. Here are the winners:
