Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Eric Bourland
Dear Editor,

I’m a longtime reader of Copper Canyon books and of Marilyn Chin’s excellent poems (and, for that matter, of Poetry). I wonder if there are more useful endeavors to which all of these people could apply themselves—maybe the continued delivery of good poetry into the hands of this and other readers?

Chicago, Illinois
