Austria, Germany and Switzerland

I have just received a wonderful, informative e-mail from Penelope Monkhouse in Germany.

Penelope has given me the following list of poets which is fantastic and is just what I have been searching for.

I list the poets here and will add them to the Revised List shortly.   Thank you very much Penelope.

I am doing my best to prepare panels to send to the printers for the Exhibition at the Ace Centre on 15th August 2013 but have to admit that other interesting facts sometimes distract me.  It is good to have some variety though.
