Reply David Hollywood June 1, 2017 Marvelous, and I hope many aspiring poets have the ambition to read it. Reply Hibah Shabkhez June 1, 2017 Congratulations! Reply Joseph Charles MacKenzie June 2, 2017 This is a grand and lovely affair. Having purchased the Society’s annual journal, I am able to assure everyone that SCP publications are always superb, wonderfully accessible, professional looking productions. There are many young poets with little experience for whom this would serve as an excellent and timeless reference—not to mention older poets new to the arcanes of traditional versification. I speak for many seasoned poets in recommending “How To Write Classical Poetry” to high school and college English faculty as a standard preparation for surveys of English poetry, as well creative writing courses, in their curricula. Reply Neal June 7, 2017 Excellence extended. Uncommon. “We felt sorry for those who didn’t appreciate Sewanee”…quote from an early student at the school Reply Onyenankeya Christopher June 11, 2017 how can I be officially a member of the society of classical poets.
