  4. Greetings, Derek,

    Would you mind dropping me an email via jskinner(at)bates(dot)edu? This may come as a surprise, but the ecopoetics issue that includes your poem “Learning About Explorers” is finally about to be printed, and I wanted to run a proof by you, plus get some additional information (short bio, mailing address). Thanks!
