The Flash Mob Poetry Party March 11 at Bell the Cat yielded an unofficial and still ambivalent answer to the question of who is the city’s poet laureate, as well as a raffle winner.

An ad-hoc poet laureate selection committee announced that Anonymous is Belfast’s Interim Belfast Area Poet Laureate. A bit more concrete was the prize poet Jane Eagles won in the raffle, a poetry T-shirt donated by Yo Mamma’s Home. Proceeds from the raffle will be donated to local poetry events.
