Bill Rogers AKA Wild Bill The Alaskan Biker Poet Set As BikerPoet Laureate of The Northern Frontier 2006!
AN OPEN LETTER
From: K. Peddlar Bridges
To: Bill Rogers
Rock and Roll ...
You have been set as Roadpoet eMagazine's BikerPoet Laureate of the Northern Frontier. You have been appointed as BikerPoet Laureate because you are one. Your history and talent have proven this. The criteria for being a Bikerpoet Laureate are; do you really ride or are you a poser? Need I ask? Do you have poetic talent? Again, Do I need ask? Do you have the history? And here is where it is easy to fall short. Do you promote others and not just yourself on a regular basis? There are many who don't promote others, but your web site has always shown that you are more than willing to help promote others and again your hard copy magazine, Midnight Sun Rider, has done the same.
You have earned this my friend. This is not just given, as BikerPoet Laureate of the Northern Frontier; your duties shall be to publish on a regular basis, minimal 4 times a year or quarterly. Publish others on the same regular basis, to promote Bikerpoetry, Motorcycling, Poetry, and to mention your BikerPoet Laureateship and Roadpoet eMagazine events and happenings on occasion. To try to hit a live venue every now and then to help promote Bikerpoetry and proclaim yourself as BikerPoet Laureate of the Northern Frontier.
Your BikerPoet Laureateship will run from August 1st, 2006 to August 15th, 2007 and may be extended in the light of the fulfilled given criteria. From August 1st, 2006 on you may sign any column, article, letter, etc., with your title as: BikerPoet Laureate / BikerPoet Laureate of the Northern Frontier, Roadpoet eMagazine BikerPoet Laureate, Etc.
