Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Fred Souk
Dear Editor,

With regard to your “Announcement of Prizes” in the November 2008 issue, it just seems wrong that there is no prize for “Best Letter to the Editor.” I urge you to consider this here letter for such a prize, should it ever be given out. Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

Reston, Virginia
