Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

It''s Christmastime, and for you who would rather not celebrate it, or call it that, it''s solstice time. However, the news has led out with Christmas articles, our second and third links in News at Eleven included. Also covering Christmas are Great Regulars Carol Ann Duffy, James Fenton, Christopher Nield, Christian Science Monitor, and West Sussex Gazette. We begin this week though with lists of poetry books. Not only is it the season to have best or favorite poetry books of the year, but they can make excellent last minute Christmas gift ideas. There is more beside Christmas. For instance, covered multiple times in Great Regulars is the work of Rachel Wetzsteon, by Adam Kirsch in Tablet and by Rosanna Warren in Powell''s Review-a-Day.

At least ten-fold congratulations are in order. The IBPC has announced the Poem of the Decade (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poem-of-the-decade-may-2000-apr-2010), as judged by former Poet Laureate of the United States (Consultant in Poetry of The Library of Congress) Daniel Hoffman (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/daniel-hoffman). And the winning poem is A Second Look at Creation by poet Sergio Lima Facchini, who workshopped the poem at poets.org. Hoffman selected ten runners up. Two of them were written by Laurie Byro. The other poets with runner-up poems for the decade are: Dale McLain, Catherine Rogers, Marilyn Injeyan, Sarah J. Sloat, Angela Armitage, Lois P. Jones, Ivan Waters, Bernard Henrie, and Robert Bohm.
