Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Sunday was the 7th anniversary of Poetry & Poets in Rags. I searched through the news, to see what was out there that week, if Google searching for news in poetry would yield usable, informative results. It worked. I posted links to the articles onto Melic''s RoundTable and the Atlantic Monthly''s Writers'' Workshop, both great and former IBPC forums, and both now defunct. After a few weeks, Gina Bryson, then managing editor of the InterBoard Poetry Community, asked if she could publish the column in the Newswire section of the IBPC web pages at Web Del Sol. I hesitated on the commitment, got a similar offer from CE Chaffin of The Melic Review, and said "yes" to Gina.

This week we begin with Simon Armitage, the old-fashioned troubadour, walking the Pennine Way and living off his poetry. After him, we have Philip Larkin, Sappho, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Jorge Luis Borges, and more, in our News at Eleven section. Check out our Great Regulars section too, it begins with articles by, in alphabetical order, Marianne Combs, Sarah Crown, Carol Ann Duffy, and Linda Sue Grimes.

Thanks for clicking in.
