Mr. Bhadra:

These are my personal thoughts. Please take them as such.

I am a poet with many years standing. I began writing on paper and began publishing on paper many years before the advent of anything digital. However, I could not subscribe to your publication, publish with it or wish to do so as it stands based upon the description you use and would suggest that you alter it.

You use the phrase, “we believe that handwritten words on paper still means something to poets.” Perhaps it means something to “some” poets. But not all. It doesn’t mean anything to me any longer. I no longer have to ability to write on paper.

Many distinguished poets never have had the ability to write on paper.

Your—excuse me for putting it this way—very unpoetic phrasing makes you sound elitist and privileged. Many very good poets, perhaps better than many in your publication, write almost exclusively using digital equipment or with various other methods rather than with paper. Some by choice, some not.

I would most heartily suggest you rephase this portion of your description.

Thank you for your attention and patience.
