When we converse with, argue against, mimic, re-present, and admire other poets in our poems we inevitably grow.

Eduardo,

Could you say more about why you won't submit because the series editor is a blogger? I think you mentioned this before.

Mary passes on the manuscripts to others if there are conflicts of interest.

Akron does things right.

But I can certainly see your manuscript as an ass-kicker, so yes, do us all a favor and back off. OK? :)
