News at Eleven: How would unpublished poets, used to

reading privately to each other, feel about their poems being poked and pruned on air?

I needn't have worried. Members of a good group want, and respect, constructive feedback. My part was simple, but from a radio point of view, interesting listeners in criticising poems they can't read, inviting them to spot the shaded inner workings of words they were unable to go back to, posed a complex challenge.
