Comments From Our Readers

Printed in the January - February - March - 2003 Issue

Benita Glickman: Thank you for selecting my poem "Sight's Echo" for publication in Poetry Depth Quarterly. It is a splendid publication, and I am thrilled that my work appears on the same pages as the work of well-known, wonderful poets such as yourself, Lyn Lifshin and Gerald Wheeler. Thank you also for electing to put "Sight's Echo" on P.D.Q.'s website

Joan Goodwin: I enjoyed the last issue of PDQ and appreciate your hard work getting it ready for publication. Thank you for publishing my poem.

John Grey: Excellent issue. Favorites include Man Feeding Angels by James Mackie and Letter To Stockton From Brunswick by Fredrick Zydeck.

Jerry A. Judge: You put on a high quality magazine. Recently I checked out the web site and was impressed by the chosen poems and the colored drawings, which would be too expensive to have in the print edition. My favorite poem in the current issue is "Glorious Psychedelic Resolution." Daily's (aka Lori Smaltz) line of /I am an evil butterfly/ is inspired.

John Rowe: Many thanks for publishing my poetry in P.D.Q. last year.

Simon Perchik: Received Poetry Depth Quarterly and am so very proud to be included. I'm in good company.

Steven Plewnarz: I do enjoy reading Poetry Depth Quarterly and am particularly impressed with many of the shorter poems within it, as they go beyond merely slapdash-stuff by dashing-out real persons on the hip of nature, commonly valuable as imagined reality.

David Spiering: Your Magazine's like red wine that I would give to someone who says they like red wine, then, I'd sit back and watch the smile grow on their face.

Larry D. Thomas: Thank you for your kindness in featuring my poem, Palimpsest, which appears in the Oct-Nov-Dec 2002 issue of P.D.Q. on your website. Your generous support of my work is greatly appreciated. With regard to the current issue, I found especially impressive the manner in which the poems are arranged. The whimsical artwork of Lizzy Williams is a perfect complement to the poetry. Great job!

(We blush with pleasure for such supportive feedback, from some of the best poets of today. Thank you. Publisher: G. Elton Warrick, Poetry Editor: Joyce Odam, Art Manager and Website Manager: Lori Smaltz)

J. A. Judge: I am enjoying the latest issue of P. D. Q.   As usual, the poems show depth, passion and craft. Cold Shingle by Taylor Graham is grand. Jane Anderson's artwork adds a tasty frosting to the cake.
