Open Letter: A Journal of Writing & Theory

Open Letter is perhaps Canada's most intriguing critical journal, at least where poetry is concerned. The latest issue is dedicated to Kenneth Goldsmith, proprietor of ubu.web and poet extrordinaire. My only complaint, and it's a big one, is why don't they have anything online?? Where is the Canadian online poetry presence? Where are the audio files? Where are the essays? The critical writing?? We need to see a more well-rounded picture of Canada from the outside. Come on guys--even Geist and Maisonneuve--get it together, put some of the work online, start archives, invite people in!!

Yes, I'll order Open Letter, but it's not the same...
