Dear PD Lyons

Thank you for sending your poetry to be considered for publication in The English Chicago Review. I am delighted to be able to inform you that I will be including “The Day It Didn’t Snow” in issue three of the magazine (due for publication October 2013).

I currently do not have an EU address for you, if you have an EU address, please could you send me it via email so that I can post a contributor copy of the magazine to you. I regret that, due to postage charges, I am unable to send physical contributor copies outside the EU, if there is not an EU address I can post a copy to, a pdf copy will be emailed to you instead.

Thank you very much for your support, it was a pleasure reading your work and I hope that you will send more poetry for future issues of the magazine.

Best wishes

Ashley Fisher

a poem by pd lyons –

The Day It Didnt Snow

Rita asked me to tell

her about swimming

in the halls

But my mind was on

other things

Crunchy candie

in my mouth

tiny pieces of pain

on my tongue

staining my

mouth in

December 12, 1973

flavours so intense I could not tell her anything that mattered
