Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

We begin our poetic travels this week, listening on the path between India and China to Rabindranath Tagore. We then find a poetic link between the United States and Russia in Joseph Brodsky. Then we''re off to the city of Erbil in Iraq, to wonder where is freedom''s road from literature to religion. Then we click into Burma to look with Aung San Suu Kyi for the way to democracy.

As soon as we get through the eleven articles in News at Eleven, armed mightily with this information, Great Britain''s Bryan Appleyard begins our Great Regulars section with an article called, "The Net Delusion: How Not to Liberate the World," by which we consider "the web’s power to spread freedom and information," or lack thereof.

As always, there are dozens more articles than alluded to above, and plenty of fresh and excellent poetry for your discovery in our links in Great Regulars. Also, in Poetic Obituaries, some important people to poetry have left us.

December''s IBPC results are in: http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2010/12. Thanks to our Fall 2010 judge Paul Lisicky: http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/paul-lisicky. He has been wonderful. And congrats to the poets and boards with the winning poems:

1st Place: Giant Cockroaches[/url] by Mignon Ledgard of The Writers Block
2nd Place: A New Cartography by Mandy Pannett of The Write Idea
3rd Place: Run by Cynthia Neely of Desert Moon Review

Thanks for clicking in.
