Neil Gaiman

“Poets & Writers—as a magazine, as a project, as events, and as an ideal—helps people. It answers the questions that beginning writers and poets have, the ones we don’t even know enough to ask. It spreads information that we wouldn’t know to look for. It celebrates achievements that the world at large might be blind to. And it tells each of us that, if we are prepared to do the work, we are poets, and we are writers. It’s invaluable. Here’s to the next 50 years!”
