Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Brian Houghton

Dear Editor,

As a lover of literature but an infrequent admirer of poetry, I recently subscribed to your magazine to try and expand my horizons. The April issue, in which the poets explain aspects of their work, helped me enjoy the vivid, living nature of the medium. It is my hope that this format will continue in future issues.
