Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

Thursday was Valentines Day, the perfect occasion for the world's newspapers to publish articles on love poetry. In our News at Eleven section, we have four such articles, including our headliner. In our Great Regulars section, Shannon Doyne, Carol Ann Duffy, Garrison Keillor, Brad Leithauser, E. Ethelbert Miller, and Christopher Nield all bring us a heart-shaped look at love.

Still a great story in this world of poetry is the many looks at Sylvia Plath that are coming out this year on the 50th anniversary of her death. We have a clutch of seven articles on her life, loves, and poetry.

Last week, Polina Barskova's IBPC contest results for December went up on the site. The poems and her commentary make for excellent reading. Thanks to Polina, and congratulations to the poets and the boards that sent the winning poems in:

First place: Dying in Jerusalem by Daniel Abelman, of conjunction
Second place: Eating a Bruised Bosc Pear on Armistice Day by Christopher T. George, of FreeWrights Peer Review
Third place: I Used to Miss My Tail by Alison Armstrong-Webber, of The Waters

Thanks for clicking in.
