“IPM will be presenting poems that map territories both broad and intimate, urban and rural, topographies of nations, family relationships and internal landscapes. I invite you all to come and read, bring your keys and re-map the territory of the coming 28 days of poetry…who knows what you’ll discover about your own territory…You are Here. You are This.”
That was the premise with which we began the journey of International Poetry Month. I hope that both Readers and Poets have enjoyed the trip. Today is the second of March, spring is on it’s way and the wind has come to blow through the leaves of these poems and carry them away, leaving only the voices behind. Some you will still be able to find on the web, or in a book. Some will be gone for good. Following is an alphabetical list of the participating poets; each name is also a link to the poet’s work posted at IPM. My deepest thanks to all of you who have participated in IPM 2013 by reading or writing or both.
Again, my sincere thanks to you all for your generous attention to all of these writers and their work.
All the best and Happy Reading,
Bonnie M. McCllan
