Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog:

News at Eleven begins this week with a new $50,000 poetry prize for a single poem. I usually stay away from the economics of professional poetry, but the idea of such a prize struck me as someone finally recognizing the cultural value of good poems. And even though $50,000 is not a billion dollars, this more than any other prize approximates such pricelessness.

It''s a varied and interesting week for news in poetry throughout News at Eleven. And you''ll find some gems in Great Regulars also, as always. For instance, Adam Kirsch brings us a terrific review, and E. Ethelbert Miller relays Amiri Baraka''s latest poem. Which reminds me, much of what we have is keyed into current affairs around the world.

There''s more, much more. I''ll let you get to your reading. Thanks for clicking in.
