Glory, Glory, Hallelujah

During one of my semi-annual visits to the Twin Cities last spring, an old friend put me onto a copy of your fine magazine. As I leafed through it, I was instantly impressed. I retired from teaching six years ago to my old home state but still find myself missing the many cultural amenities afforded by the Twin Cities area. Your magazine afforded a cure for my occasional bouts of cultural withdrawal. I was impressed by its breadth of coverage and the fact that, unlike many city magazines of its type, there is more pure content than any other that I had read. It echoes in nice ways the structure and content of its ancient sister the New Yorker—a magazine I have subscribed to for thirty years. Even so, it is distinctly a pure product of the area and captures its ethos beautifully. Also, unlike most city magazines, it is not ruled by advertising and its articles are not thinly disguised promotions for local business and commercial ventures. Keep on printing fiction, the more markets there are for that the better.

After reading a second issue graciously sent to me by my friend after my return, I was compelled to subscribe. I look forward to more of your varied coverage and fine writing.
