Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

It is such a problem to so many, what poets write, and even what they do. We begin News at Eleven with Ali Ahmed Said, better known as Adonis, explaining the power of poetry, and the place of his. We then give Joumana Haddad a listen, who many would like to silence and whose work many would like to stop. Our third item is about another poet from that vicinity, Tal al-Mallohi, a high schooler who is imprisoned. We then have another article on Taslima Nasrin, an exiled poet, and then more on recently released Aung San Suu Kyi.

Our sixth link is about an American poet, and how her sestina got published in the New Yorker. This is followed by five articles from the British Isles. Our Great Regulars section is more North America oriented, with links to some very nice poetry.

But the news items that Great Regular Luisetta Mudie renders into English for Radio Free Asia are a great service to the world. This week, she looks at China, Burma, and Tibet for us.

Congratulations are in order. And thanks to IBPC''s new judge, Paul Lisicky (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/paul-lisicky), who is reading for these fall months we are in. October''s results (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2010/10) are up, both the poems and Paul''s comments, for your enjoyment and review. Congratulations to the follow poets and boards:

Bernard Henrie of The Writers Block (http://www.the-writers-block.net), who wrote our first place poem, Chichicapa, Mexico
Billy Howell-Sinnard also of The Writers Block, who wrote our second place poem, Iowa Born
and T. Obatala of About Poetry Forum(http://poetry.about.com), who wrote the third place poem, God War

Thanks clicking in.
