Remembering those whose words live on

Don­ald Hall, who died on June 23 at the age of 89, ap­peared on the cover of Po­ets & Writ­ers Mag­a­zine twice, in 1994 and again in 2014. After his most re­cent ap­pear­ance, as the sub­ject of “Turn­ing Time Around” (Novem­ber/De­cem­ber 2014) by John Free­man, the for­mer U.S. poet lau­re­ate and re­cip­i­ent of the Na­tional Medal of Arts struck up a cor­re­spon­dence with ed­i­tor in chief Kevin Larimer. “I have not seen the mag­a­zine in a good while, and it is damned good,” he wrote in a let­ter dated Novem­ber 4, 2014. “It took me an hour to look through it. I like these many pieces about small presses and small press ed­i­tors…. Need­less to say, I like John Free­man’s piece the best. In all mod­esty, of course.”
