Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:
http://poetryandpoetsinrags.blogspot.com/

We begin with an excellent story about former U.S Poet Laureate Donald Hall receiving the National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama. This fine article from the Concord Monitor, however, is followed up with a link to Stanford University''s The Book Haven where we find that The Washington Post has run a derisive blog about the event. That same clutch of links finishes with Frank Wilson''s post on the matter at his blog Books, Inq: The Epilogue. I did not, however, give The Washington Post a link to its blog on Mr. Hall, as I did not want to be a supportive statistic. The link is available in The Book Haven article.

January''s IBPC results are in (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/2011/01) thanks to our Winter 2011 judge Kwame Dawes (http://ibpc.webdelsol.com/judges/kwame-dawes). Congrats to the poets and boards on their winning poems!:

Thanks for clicking in.
