Respected, Richard Atwood, We appreciate your complaint (and we really did, however, want suggestions/complaints). Things you have mentioned will be looked after; we assure you and all. Nothing, moreover, can be perfect! It must be some silly mistake by the typing or the managing staff. Whatever be the case, the fault will be looked into and solution will be reached. Many thanks to write in.
I was glad to be included in your first two issues. You did, however, want commentary. Generally a nice magazine, and glad you have included many from different areas of the world as contributors.However, one major complaint... the editorial staff should not be altering poet's poems. Meaning, how a poem is submitted is the way the poet wants his work to appear.1. Do not change the formatting of the poem's line structure -- (you did this by centering most of the poetry on the pages).2. Do not add punctuation that was not in the original -- (if you feel you must do so, you should contact the poet and tell him why this might be necessary -- or he may choose to withdraw his material from publication). By doing this, you are changing the work into something the poet did not intend, or the way it was intended to be read.Things like this do not make many "artists" happy. It's a bit like saying we love your painting, but we want to make your sky red instead of blue. And then you do it. Not a good idea.Nonetheless, any publication credit is nice to have. I give you best wishes for further issues.Rick Atwood(Originally posted in March 2015)
