Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

Poet Vladimir Neklyayev ran for president of Belarus against dictator Alexander Lukashenko, and was beaten unconscious, possibly to death, for it. This is our lead story. In a gross slap at freedom of speech, and through the fear of a popular personality swaying opinion, China has shut down Han Han''s magazine. This is our second link. After these articles in our News at Eleven section, come some terrific poetry, then profiles of two award-winning poets, then a group of articles that could each have been on our Back Page.

Our Great Regulars section is great as usual, with its own selections of poetry. But click into Meghan O''Rourke''s offering to hit a poetry jackpot. Also to note, Anthony Maulucci''s last column in the Norwich Bulletin came this week. Has it been three and a half years already?

More IBPC congratulations in order, as Paul Lisicky''s (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/paul-lisicky) November results (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2010/11) have been announced. Congratulations to Jude Goodwin of The Waters (http://thewaters35527.yuku.com/) for her first place poem Hush (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/hush). The poem Doors Beneath Their Signs (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/doors-beneath-their-signs) by Larry Jordan of PoetryCircle (http://www.poetrycircle.com/) is second, and in third is I Could Cry But I Don''t (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/poems/i-could-cry-but-i-dont) by Billy Howell-Sinnard of The Writer''s Block (http://www.the-writers-block.net/).

Have a happy and safe New Year.

Thanks for clicking in.
