THE POETRY MAIL ISSUE I

I am extremely glad to present the first issue of The Poetry Mail. This was a long awaited project that I wanted to undertake. I am grateful to the contributors of this issue as well as all those who had sent their work for consideration. In this issue, our amazing jury member of both 2013 & 2014 RL POETRY AWARD Judge, Ranjit Hoskote has contributed his works along with our beloved George Szirtes. I am proud to represent this issue and hope to bring forth a diverse range of voices in the future/upcoming issues. Thanks to Ravi Shanker (RaSh) for his introductory essay plus translations of 3 Malayali poets, Nandini Dhar and Metta Sama whose works and poetry always inspire me.  Love, Linda Ashok, Editor.
