Poet-in-Residence is pleased announce that he has recently been elected as a Poet Fellow following a high level board meeting at Noble House. This honour arises because your humble scribe's spoof poem 'Searching for Euterpe' reached the semi-finals of the World's Greatest Vanity Poetry Contest (like 12% of all entrants).
The curious thing about the announcement is that it comes only days before the offical announcement of the 2007/8 Grand Prize Winner (not sure if the prize will be $1,000 or $10,000 - quite hard to figure out). The honour includes the opportunity to order a $59.95 18kt gold pin (plus $9.00 p&p).
P-i-R is happy(?) to be known before all the world as a Poet Fellow. He will be declining the opportunity to display his "unique talent" on his lapel.
