Poetry24 Review of the Year 2011

Clare and I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has helped to establish Poetry24 as a place where poets can express their thoughts and feelings about what's happening in the world around them.

Since our launch, in February, we've been able to publish, pretty much, on a daily basis. This would have been impossible without the poets among you. Equally, the poet's work needs to be read, and that's why we appreciate you, our visitors, and your valuable comments.

We owe a further debt of gratitude to Anthony Baverstock, who took the time and trouble to create this video. So, please take a few minutes to enjoy Poetry24's Review of the Year 2011.

We aim to be publishing again on 28th December, so do keep the poems coming. In the meantime, have a very Happy Christmas!

  6. Hahahaha - fantastic and very clever video :) Thanks for all your hard work and for bringing Poetry24 to the world at large and for providing poets with an opportunity to participate in news as the muse. Happy Christmas Martin and Clare and I look forward to another year of poetry. Hip hip hooray!!!!! and the sound of champagne popping (followed by guzzling noise) :)

  10. Thanks for all the comments – I'm glad people seemed to like the review.

    Thank you also to Poetry 24 for a whole week as Christmas Number 1 – I couldn't have wished for a better present! I also couldn't presume to hog this prestigious slot next year, so if someone fancies doing a 2012 review, please just say and I'll hand over the baton.
