WAKOSKI MSS. II
The Wakoski mss. II, 1984-1996, consist of the letters of poet
Diane Wakoski, 1937- , to poet and magazine editor David Spicer.
The letters concern submissions by Wakoski to Spicer's magazine
RACCOON, as well as comments on Spicer's books and on his
magazine. The November 15, 1986 letter submits her long essay on
poetry which appeared in RACCOON 23/24 (10th anniversary
edition). She discusses the essay and adds a three-line
contributor's note for inclusion in the magazine. The letters
from 1991-1992 concern the chapbook competition that Spicer wants
Wakoski to judge. The May 11, 1992 letter provides a detailed
critique of the poetry books submitted.
A detailed list of the dates of the letters follows this description.
