Reader, it’s time to start writing letters to The Pilgrim. Or if the stamp-and-envelope process has you defeated, it’s time to send us an email. We need to hear from you. Ground Control to Major Tom, and so on. Perhaps the work or development of a particular writer, issue by issue, has struck you. Let her know. Perhaps a single piece has affected you in some way, rattled something loose. Communicate that to us. “Are our readers real with themselves?” asks Bryant Draycott on page 10. “And if they’re not, how are they going to feel about our stories?” We’ve been here four years. We’re not going anywhere. Anoint us with your views. The addresses are –
The Pilgrim Cathedral Church of St Paul 138 Tremont St, Boston MA 02111
