Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

This is the final installment of Poetry & Poets in Rags, completing 10 years, and well over 500 issues. It started as a weekly Saturday forum post at two now-defunct poetry boards, Melic Review and The Atlantic Monthly. It was picked up shortly thereafter by IBPC, which has carried it for nearly its entire 10 years. Early on, it went from coming out on Saturdays to Tuesdays. The popular companion blog began in 2006. My initial motivation was that if I were passing important information on to just one person, then it would be worth the effort. And it has grown to much more than that.

Thanks to all who have clicked in, and if you're reading this, you must be one. Thank you.

Hi Lori,

Thanks for your good note.

Hope all is well.


I too have enjoyed reading Poetry and Poets in Rags blog, Rus. smart.gif

Such a lot of fascinating info over those 10 years. Not that I read you way back then! butterfly.gif

I'm sure you must feel it's time to retire and enjoy other pastimes.

It appears to me that IBPC had become a burden for you, Rus. I don't feel I should intrude in personal stuff, but I want to say that I sure hope you're OK healthwise. Take care of yourself..

Cheers and many thanks for all you've shared with us,

Hi Sylvia,


My main idea was to free up time so that I could be creative, and maybe see what other projects might be out there for me. But right, now I am sick.

See you on FB!
