"Poet of the Year" by Poeticmindset.com

Today I launched poeticmindset.com, a new poetry website, so come check it out. Write/post or submit to the ezine.

Today I have also decided to announce that I'll be picking poeticmindset's first Poet of the Year. This person has gone above and beyond in 2009 to write a daily poem. This person inspired me to write a poem a day in November, but this person has written a poem a day since January 1, 2009 (Think about that for a moment). Amazing. The poetry is raw, and from the gut. It is uncensored. These poems are true feelings expressed daily, a poetic diary, and I am honored to announce Ian Kellett as the inaugural Poet of the Year on poeticmindset.com.

A brief bit about Ian Kellett: Ian is a 43 year old fellow (loving dad) from Goole in England, striving to make the world a better, Yorkshire flavored place. He's been writing for 20 years, but only recently started organizing and collecting material in 2003. So far, he says, he's collected/written enough poetry to fill 11 books. He is currently finishing up his blog for 2009, which will be collected and bound come the last day of the year.

Check out Ian's blog "Moongoole", follow him on twitter - @iangoole (again, he will say it like it is - be warned) ;)

All the best as you head into 2010 Ian, and I hope that in the future there will be a cash award. For now, I offer you props, and know that you have worked hard to earn this award.
