Peace and Reconciliation at the Poetry Society?

August 18, 2011

Judith Palmer, whose shabby treatment by the board and subsequent resignation led to the expensive brouhaha at the Poetry Society, has now been reinstated.

Will this mean an end to the troubles? Will she now live peacefully with the editor of Poetry Review?

We shall see – but it may take a time before the Society’s reputation recovers. A poet friend of mine was asked if he wanted to renew his subscription to the Society. He replied suggesting that it might be more practical if he just sent the money directly to Harbottle and Lewis.
